Urban (micro)climates differ from surrounding unbuilt environments, and we need to understand these differences to foster better outcomes. In this course you will learn about aspects of urban environments impacting on their climate, and features that make them adaptive to heat and healthy for people. Using thermal cameras, infrared thermometers and weather stations you will collect and analyse data to make evidence-based decisions on climate-responsive design. You will also learn about software and technologies for visualising urban climate as outcomes of urban design and planning decisions.
