SW-IFL: Southwest Urban Corridor Integrated Field Laboratory

The Southwest Urban Corridor Integrated Field Laboratory (SW-IFL) integrates existing and new networks of weather, air quality, and hydrological measurements, in combination with modeling to explore extreme heat as a driver of social and environmental outcomes in the urban environment. This work engages stakeholders and provides scientists and decision makers with high-quality, relevant knowledge capable of spurring and guiding responses to environmental concerns. Ultimately, new tools will empower the public to respond to extreme heat, while informing the development and deployment of policies and solutions that are effective, equitable and generalizable.
