Abstract

This research investigated temperature distributions inside a parking structure across from the University Library on the campus of Eastern Michigan University. Using an infrared thermometer, we recorded temperature data at specific points on all floors of the structure. We will present the interpretation of our data in light of heat flow mechanisms to gain insight on how heat flow affects local climate. We will discuss how this analysis might be used to predict internal temperature based on external conditions. This technique is also applicable to other features, both natural and artificial, providing us with a tool to study microclimates in ecosystems and other technologic advancements.
