Abstract

Urban Physics is the multiscale and interdisciplinary research area dealing with physical processes in urban environments that influence our everyday health, comfort and productivity. It involves disciplines ranging from mesoscale meteorology to human thermophysiology. The introductory lecture addresses basic research on numerical modeling of microscale atmospheric boundary layer processes as well as practical applications such as outdoor air pollution, pedestrian wind comfort and the urban heat island effect.
