The atmospheric modeling research group at URBAG is offering two Master's theses for the January-September 2023 period. This offer will give you the opportunity to start working in the scientific field with colleagues from diverse backgrounds. Case study: Metropolitan Area of Barcelona and Greater Oslo Region
Title: How do street trees affect urban temperatures and radiation exchange? Observations and numerical evaluation in a highly compact city / Street trees are an important driver of street microclimate through shading and transpirative cooling, which are key mechanisms for improving thermal comfort in urban areas. Urban canopy models (UCM) with integrated trees are useful tools because they represent the impacts of street trees on neighborhood-scale climate.
