Social dimension of a multi-scale life cycle assessment: the urban heat island mitigation in New York City

Presentation / Conference
Susca, T. (2012, November)
Social dimension of a multi-scale life cycle assessment: the urban heat island mitigation in New York City. Presented at SETAC Europe 18th SETAC LCA Case Study Symposium. Tools, Trends and Applications, Copenhagen, Denmark
