Systematic Assessment of Surface Temperatures and Associated Environmental Impacts – Dr Sebastian Pfautsch

Synthetic turf is also widely used in playgrounds of parks, schools, early learning centres and increasingly around residential homes. These applications aim to benefit from the durability of the material, its visual appearance as ‘green grassy’ surface without the need for irrigation, and general low maintenance.

neighbourhood playground, or as large-scale application on a professional soccer field comes with a range of environmental impacts.
