Abstract

Urbanization leads to increasing heat stress in the hot and humid climates, therefore the formation of a concentrated original microclimate within municipal environs is seen as crucial. The megacity of Hyderabad has experienced heat, but the cooling impact of the water bodies in the megacity has received little attention thus far. While the evaporative action of water is thought to be acting on its own to lower the temperature of the surrounding medium. The microclimate of the girding area is cooled by rivers. Other researchers refocused on the fact that the most efficient non-resisting method of cooling buildings or public spaces is evaporative cooling via water bodies or features. A simulation tool called Envi- met was used to analyse the impact of water bodies on microclimates.

The software's application is to analyse the temperature distribution of a typical urban layout with and without water. According to our analysis of the research, bodies of water may effectively lower city temperatures by 0.5 to 4.0 °C. Based on the results, it can be inferred that increasing evapotranspiration in cities, which results in water bodies, may successfully reduce the impact of civic heat islands.
