Kansas City was one of more than a dozen metropolitan areas in 11 states that have participated in the heat-mapping campaign this year. On Aug. 6, a team of 50 volunteers, led by Fengpeng Sun, a climate scientist at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, attached sensors to their vehicles and drove designated routes through 10 areas of the city at three different times of day early morning, mid-afternoon and early evening.
