GUCG - Göteborg Urban Climate Group
During the last decades research has focused on projects related to the influence of the urban geometry, urban vegetation and land cover on radiation, temperature and wind. Projects also concern the relation between urban climate and air quality as well as outdoor thermal comfort. Integration of climate knowledge in urban design and planning is also an important research topic. Many of the projects are multi-, inter- and transdisciplinary, including scientists from atmospheric science, architecture, urban and regional planning, psychology, biology, and medicine. The studies have been carried out in urban areas in Sweden, Germany, UK, Japan, Botswana, Tanzania, Burkina Faso, Kenya and the Netherlands.
