Contents Types of location Hypothesis Human thermometer Day 1 & 2 temperatures Analysis Conclusion
Pre-fieldwork: Location • A: Top floor of multi-storey carpark • B: Garden outside printing centre • C: Open space between canteen and Block C • D: Terraces • E: Field • F: Running track • G: Fountain area outside General Office
Pre-fieldwork: Human thermometer • We rated the location with 1 being the hottest and 7 being the coolest. • 4, 7, 6, 2, 3, 1, 5. • A to G respectively
Pre-fieldwork: Hypothesis • Concrete surfaces are hotter than non-concrete surfaces. • Logic – is that solids heat up faster.
Fieldwork: Day 1 14th January, 11.58p.m.
Fieldwork: Day 2 15th January, 12.15p.m.
Fieldwork: Consolidating Results • After comparing the results, we realised the difference in temperatures in different areas. • Especially cement vs. non-cement grounds • And have thus realised that cemented grounds are hotter than that of non-cemented grounds
D A C B E F G
Fieldwork: Results • The results have thus shown that cemented areas (eg. Sites A, C and D) have higher temperatures than non-cemented areas (eg. B, E, F and G.
Post-fieldwork: Conclusion • Concrete surfaces, being solids, absorb more heat. • Thus explains the higher temperatures in concrete grounds as compared to non-concrete grounds
