The population of people living in temporary settlements after disasters is in the millions and the average stay in these settlements exceeds a decade. The issue of the thermal performance of shelters and their impact on health is generally overlooked by the academic community. In an attempt to rebalance this situation, thermal surveys were conducted in two refugee camps in Jordan. Thermal monitoring data of the shelters over two weeks in summer and winter are presented in this dataset.
