 Urban Climate and Heat Stress - UCaHS (DFG Forschergruppe, 2012-2016) 

The DFG Research Unit addresses the complex scientific questions related to heat stress in mid-latitude cities by a multi- and interdisciplinary approach involving climatologists, geographers and hydrologists, physicians, architects, physicists and engineers, urban planners and social scientists. The causal chains spanning from climate modifications by urban regions to out- and indoor heat stress hazards will be analysed in detail, and scenario-based projections of future heat-stress hazards considering urban climate change as well as urban development paths will be computed for the example of Berlin. Heat-stress risks will be studied by available observational data, in particular for specifically vulnerable groups of senior people or patients in hospitals.
The Geoinformation Science lab will contribute to the research group by developing and applying a spatio-temporal modelling approach for urban vulnerability.

► Eagerlearn (DAAD, 2016-2018)
