Climate change and global warming represent new factors for consideration in building design (Hennessy 2008). Research undertaken previously (Thomas and Moller 2007; Moller and Thomas, Chapter 22 in this volume) has indicated that there are existing issues in optimizing heating,ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) system design in buildings. One factor in designing efficient HVAC systems is to ensure that the design conditions are as accurate as possible. This includes consideration of the urban heat island effect (Arnfield 2003), the effect extending well into the suburban morphology (Gokhale-Madan 1994; Gokhale 1997, 1999), which is expected to be accentuated under future climate change scenarios (Howden and Crimp 2008).

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
