Professor maps Portland Hot Spots

Portland over view

Do you sometimes think that the Brooklyn Neighborhood is a bit warmer than our neighboring areas? You may be right in assuming this according to a study by a PSU professor and reported on KGW news on July 8th.

The Professor has done an extensive collection of data and found that Brooklyn is one of the hottest neighborhoods (temperature wise) in Portland.

What contributes to this phenomenon? Watch this Channel 8 video report and form your own conclusion. Is it the lack of tree canopies or the accumulation of excess concrete, or some other fact?

Check this full report that addresses climate change.
