 +In this case study, one of LA’s oldest neighborhoods, Angelino Heights, was simulated in order to analyze changes caused by different surface materials.  
 + 
 +In order to understand long-term effects like underground heat storage, this simulation covers 6 days in June (18th to 23rd).

 +Here you can download the two L.A. models, one with dark streets and the other with white coated streets plus the associated .SIMX files. This project also uses a Project Database which included in the download.

 +The model results below have been calculate using the full version of ENVI-met (BUSINESS/SCIENCE). The outputs generated by the free LITE version contain much fewer data. **This is a large dataset covering 6 simulated days.** 
 + 
 +<WRAP center round info 60%> 
 +There are always two sets of files, one for the base scenario with classic dark streets ("//AsphaltRoad...//" and one with the white-coated streets ("//WhiteStreets..//"). To compare the two and analyse the effects of white coated streets, you need to download both sets and extract them to your disc.
