Urban Microclimate PDF Summary

Urban Microclimate provides readers with the means to measure and model the urban thermal environment with clear guidelines on how to use this data to mitigate against changing climate conditions and severe thermal stress in urban areas, particularly hot, humid regions. All stages of the urban thermal environment are addressed, describing urban microclimates and why they affect the environment and human body, how to acquire the underlying data and quantifiably identify thermal stress hot spots in urban areas, and how to cool cities through planning and design approaches. In Part I, the underlying theoretical and conceptual science behind urban climatology and meteorology is discussed in detail, including surface energy balance, the urban heat island effect, thermal comfort, and human stress effects. In Part II, clear instructions are presented on how to conduct urban microclimate measurements, remote sensing methods, microclimate modelling, and different instrumentation. Finally, Part III translates this information into practical guidance on how to mitigate against changing climate conditions and severe thermal stress in urban areas, providing concepts, design, and technique with clear and concise instructions, supported by detailed case studies to illustrate the effectiveness of each method. Urban Microclimate is an ideal reference and guidebook for Environmental Researchers, Environmental Engineers, Meteorologists and Climate Scientists, as well as Social Scientists. Explains the fundamental concepts of urban climatology and meteorology Presents instructions on how to conduct microclimate measurements, modelling, and remote sensing in urban environments Addresses key microclimatic issues in hot, humid regions through detailed case studies Provides clear and practical guidelines for the implementation of climate change-mitigating design solutions
