Third Coast Water Seminar: Hydrologic Performance of the Green Roof on the Nicholas Pirro Convention Center in Syracuse, NY

August 25, 2021

This seminar was delivered by Dr. Cliff Davidson. In this talk, he examines the hydrologic performance of a 0.56 hectare extensive green roof on a Convention Center owned by Onondaga County in Syracuse, NY. Results of modeling and measurements show that the roof captures significant amounts of stormwater during all seasons, and allows much of the water to evaporate and transpire to the atmosphere in the days after a storm.
