Urban Climatology

In order to determine potential mitigation strategies of urban microclimates, it is important to gain a robust understanding of the processes driving the formation of distinct urban climates. The foci of projects relating to urban climatology are directed towards gaining knowledge of the roles of urban design characteristics, such as density and land use type, upon surface energy fluxes and spatial warming patterns of a metropolitan area. This analysis of urban climate includes the interactions between the urban microclimate, overlying weather conditions and climate change effects.
