Influence of vegetation on thermal and urban comfort in a municipality in the south of Tocantins
Keywords:Green area; Urban afforestation; Thermal comfort.
The urban environment must be a place where user comfort is achieved. In many cases, however, urban environments do not offer adequate conditions of comfort, be it thermal, acoustic, luminous or visual. The city itself is a major climate change, due to the large paved areas and the decrease in green spaces, the air layer in urban areas tends to be warmer than in rural areas. In addition, the human activity developed in cities generates profound changes in the local climate, which can also alter the temperature and rainfall in the region in this way. The objective of this research was to evaluate the influence of urban vegetation on the temperature and relative humidity of the air. in the municipality of Gurupi in order to awaken the possibility of proposing urban projects and constructions using wooded areas. For analysis and comparison of the influence of vegetation on the aspects of thermal comfort / temperature and air humidity, the measurements will be carried out in five areas in the central region of the municipality of Gurupi-TO, for data collection, a digital thermometer will be used. collection of environmental parameters of temperature and relative humidity of the air. As for the relative humidity values, area 01 showed an average of 36%, area 2, average humidity in 34%, in area 3, the average was 34%, in area 4 averages 38% and in area 5 averages of 40%. The results allow to assist the planning of the city of Gurupi, which can be adopted for proposing urban spaces with a higher quality of life for the population.
