REKLISO is a regional climate analysis study addressing aspects of ventilation, air quality and thermal situation for the use in regional planning affairs. Final results are displayed as digital climate analysis maps and maps with planning remarks. REKLISO provides significant, spatially distributed basic information for the consideration of protected goods as climate and air quality while updating the landscape framework plan as well as the subsequent update of the regional plan Southern Upper Rhine. In addition the study supplies municipal planning authorities with useful information to enable problem related treatment of climate aspects in their urban land use planning.


Local- and meso-scale atmospheric processes are investigated with the help of GIS based models and automated analysis procedures and evaluation methods. REKLISO exclusively makes use of spatially distributed data sets homogenous regarding space and time, ensuring constant information density throughout the study area. Quality and broad acceptance of the results are ensured by the application of spatially consistent evaluation schemes. Scenarios with modified input data but using the same evaluation schemes may show consequences of projected land use changes for climate and air quality.

The study was financed by the Regionalverband Südlicher Oberrhein with the participation of the Umweltministerium Baden-Württemberg. Scientific processing was carried out by the Technische Universität Berlin and the University of Basel, Switzerland.
