Urban Climate Research Group

About us

Our research group focuses on the climate-modifying effects of the artificial urban environment, particularly excess temperature and its governing factors. We are looking for the relationship between city districts classified in local climate zones and their thermal characteristics. Furthermore human comfort analyses are carried out in different urban micro-environments, both using measurements and modeling. In the future, these thermal comfort condition analyses are planned to be extended in the form of parallel measurements and human monitoring based on extended instrumentation in several areas of the city, which are suitable for recreation. We would also simulate the changes of comfort conditions according to different climate change scenarios. This research direction focuses in the short term on utilizing the developed methods in urban planning but at the same time our long-term goal is to appropriately describe urban surface geometry and its effects on urban atmosphere so that urban areas and heir processes can be integrated into different meteorological and climatological numerical simulation models.
