Urban Climatology

Heavy precipitation, storms, heat waves, droughts and episodes of increased air pollution cause serious health problems, including death as well as economic damage in large cities and urban regions. Due to the concentration of the population and the modifications of atmospheric processes caused by urban structures, there is a particularly high need for action. When investigating the environmental conditions of urban districts up to large cities, atmospheric processes on different spatial and temporal scales, weather situation, climate conditions and long-range transport of air pollutants must be taken into account. Furthermore, global atmospheric circulation, climate variability and climate change also influence the urban atmosphere.
