An Earth observation based method to assess the influence of seasonal dynamics of canopy interception storage on the urban water balance

Greener and larger neighbourhoods make cities more sustainable! A 2D urban economics perspective
We analyse urban growth forms by means of a 2D microeconomic model where households value green space at neighbourhood scale. We analytically demonstrate that cities can grow more densely when households have the possibility to enlarge the neighbourhood in which they value green space, thus emphasis...
