Episode Description:

A green roof can certainly make a building look
nicer, but can it measurably lower energy requirements, improve water
management? Engineer Jelena Srebric and horticulturist Rob Berghage are
working on a project to measure and model how a green roof affects the way
buildings use energy and water. In the lab, Tyler Meek does weather
experiments indoors to determine the effects of light, wind and water on the
roof. Paulo Tabares Velasco works to make a mathematical model to predict
what will happen in the real world. The researchers hope that architects
will someday use their model to make building designs even greener.
