Towards enhanced high-resolution urban integrated system (UIS) modelling: A model chain for the Arctic urban environment

Urban climate and air quality affects a large fraction of global population. It is however notoriously difficult to work with climate anomalies at such fine scales. The urban areas, even smaller ones, are characterized by very complex surface geometry, high concentrations of surface-level emission sources and significant urban climate anomalies. Those factors make the meteorological/air … Continue reading Towards enhanced high-resolution urban integrated system (UIS) modelling: A model chain for the Arctic urban environment
