    Description

    Radiation balances and vertical and horizontal profiles of air temperature, vapor pressure and wind speed were measured across the interface of a large asphalt parking lot and an 18-m-tall Quercus velutina forest. The partitioning of available energy over the adjacent areas shows steep gradients between the parking lot and forest microclimates. Horizontal temperature and humidity gradients across the interface were on the same order of magnitude as the vertical gradients above the respective surfaces.
