How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Der interdisziplinäre Forschungsverbund LILAS (Lineare Infrastrukturen im Wandel) skizziert in dieser Publikation interdisziplinäre Perspektiven auf sowie konzeptionelle Planungs- und Gestaltungsansätze für die Weiterentwicklung kanalisierter Gewässer und Stadtstraßen für eine nachhaltige Transformation linearer Infrastrukturen in urbanen Räumen. D...
As climate change progresses, urban areas are increasingly affected by water scarcity and the urban heat island effect. Evapotranspiration (ET) is a crucial component of urban greening initiatives of cities worldwide aimed at mitigating these issues. However, ET estimation methods in urban areas have so far been limited. An expanding number of flux...
Which ecosystem services are addressed? Air filtration, air cooling, physical and mental recreation, food production, flood regulation.
The urban climate, especially the near-surface air temperature (T), is influenced to large amounts by urban surface properties on the local-scale. Landscape classification schemes, like the Local Climate Zone (LCZ) concept, classify neighbourhoods on this scale based on their surface properties, neglecting sub-scale heterogeneity in the urban struc...
The urban climate, especially the air temperature (T) at pedestrian level, is influenced to large amounts by the local scale and its urban form characteristics. Urban landscape classification schemes, like the Local Climate Zone concept (LCZ; Stewart & Oke, 2012) define homogeneous neighbourhoods on this scale and classify them based on their land cover properties (Stewart et al. 2012). Subscale heterogeneity in the urban structure and their potential effects on T are neglected. To quantify this subscale differences, a measurement campaign with 11 fixed sensors was conducted within one LCZ (LCZ 2B, “compact midrise with scattered trees”) in Berlin, Germany, in summer 2016. The found T variability was correlated to microscale urban morphological parameters such as SVF, building and vegetation fraction. Additionally, the influence of a neighbouring greenspace was observed by correlating T to the distance of the respective site to the park.
