aA heat anomaly was defined as neighborhoods that were 1.25 degrees above average temperatures for the urbanized area.
b"Adequate tree cover" is calculated based on comparing existing tree canopy to tree canopy targets that are scaled to ecoregions (forest, grassland, desert) and population density.
