P03 Applied urban climate and bioclimate

With the increase of urbanization, a significant factor playing an important role in global warming, the scientific community has been required to provide solutions addressing the negative impact of climate and the general atmospheric environment on cities, along with the improvement of these conditions for humans. The urban heat island affects not only quality of life, but in many cases also affects morbidity and mortality. Urban planning plays a very important role in this, and various studies have shown the importance of taking into account human thermal sensation in order to mitigate the negative consequences of urbanization and strengthen the resilience of the society. This session focuses on the measurement/modelling of thermal load patterns and human thermal sensation within urban agglomerations emphasizing the application possibilities. The presentations should deal with different scales and climatic contexts, all with the common theme of identifying the effect of different urban configurations on humans’ health and well-being.
