KV Green Initiative – RESEARCH COLLABORATION BETWEEN NUS AND JTC
10 Dec 2015
National University of Singapore (NUS) in collaboration with Jurong Town Corporation (JTC) will be conducting controlled experiments at Kent Vale’s Open Field.
The research objectives are:
- To study species differences in the quantum and dynamics of transpiration in relation to key environmental factors and plant functional traits.
- To study the impact of both evapotranspiration and shading of tree on the mean radiant temperature and ambient temperature through computer simulation modelling and field measurement studies.
In order to facilitate this research, a section of the open field (Diagram A) will be fenced up for a period of two years starting from 10 December 2015.
