Kickoff-Meeting of the new BMBF-funded project “Urban Climate Under Change“([UC]²) 29./30. June 2016

Urban Climate Under Change - Stadtklima im Wandel

The BMBF-funded project started first of June over a period of three years. The project’s total funding is 13 Mio Euros. The Chair of Climatology is responsible for overall project coordination as well as coordination of the sub-project “Three-Dimensional Observation of Atmospheric Processes in Cities“ (3DO). 3DO is responsible for collection, preprocessing and dissemination of observational data in three German cities (Berlin, Hamburg, Stuttgart) with a funded budget of 6 Mio Euro. Within 3DO the Chair of Climatology will conduct research funded with 1.2 Mio (including cost for project coordination).
