Urban Climate in Transition, Module B (Evaluation of Urban Climate Models, 3DO) – SP 02: Urban Mobile Measurement Systems and GIS-Integration (URBMOBI-GIS)


The Research Programme „Urban Climate under Change“ intends to develop an innovative urban climate model that is able to simulate micro-scale atmospheric processes for entire cities like Stuttgart or Berlin using grid spacings that resolve buildings, i.e., 10 m or finer. This enables interdisciplinary analyses and design of actions for protection and improvement of urban climate and air quality. Existing observational data shall be compiled and new data shall be acquired in Berlin, Hamburg and Stuttgart within Module B (Project 3DO) of the Research Programme. Both long-term observations and intensive operation periods shall be performed to acquire a broad spectrum of three-dimensional atmospheric data sets that are not only suitable for model validation but also directly enable applications e.g. in urban planning or air quality control. Therefore, new concepts and analysis tools shall be developed and tested, and be implemented in an integration platform that shall be provided to the entire Research Programme.
