Notes to answerer
Asker: Hi Lydia,
I hit a wrong option but I wanted to choose your answer so the points should not go to Annie, I need to rectify the glossary entry, which I have just done. Hope all is ok now. Thanks for bringing that to my attention Lydia :-))
Explanation: I found a couple of examples of mineralized urban spaces in English, where mineralized meant paved or concrete.
One example was discussing GIS and "mineralized spaces" and "vegetalized spaces."
Another article, "Green structures and Urban planning," says:
"While mineralized or hard elements ( concrete or asphalt paved area) can easily reach surface temperatures in the rage of 50-70 °C , leaves temperature are around air temperature with variations in the range on -1° to + °4 °C."
Since the source text is from an article about urban green construction, I am inclined to think that "espacios mineralizados" refers to "paved areas."
At first I thought the source term may have referred to what is called brownfields, but I think now that it is referring to "mineralized" spaces which are paved/concrete.
