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

The focus of the paper is on experience with different measures of decentralized stormwater management and their scientific evaluation in Hamburg, Germany. These measures—green roofs and tree pits with a focus on stormwater infiltration—are explained by indicating technical details, impact, acceptance and economic benefit. These two types are espec...

The urban heat island effect poses a challenge in several cities, and may affect human and ecosystem health. It was proven that relatively small urban conglomerations in mid-latitudes, such as the case study region of Rostock, have undergone a considerable effect recently, noticeable particularly in the warm season. Due to climatic changes, these e...
Adaptation to the unpreventable consequences of climate change is one of the main challenges for cities in the coming decades. Especially for urban areas, where consequences of climate change will occur concentrated, there is a need for sustainable climate change adaptation measures. Our research focusses on one example of adaptation measures: gree...
This chapter examines observed and potential future climate change impacts on socio-economic fields concerning urban complexes in the Baltic Sea basin. This is based on the literature review that focused mainly on English publications on climate change impacts, but included some publications in other languages on adaptation. In the Baltic Sea basin...
Der Klimawandel und seine Auswirkungen stellen die Raumplanung vor neue Herausforderungen, die trotz der damit verbundenen Komplexität und Unsicherheit eine nachhaltige zukunftsfähige Entwicklung gewährleisten soll. Diese Herausforderungen waren Gegenstand eines Szenario-Planungs-Prozesses für den Stadt-Umland-Raum Rostock, in dessen Rahmen Strateg...
This paper presents research outcomes from an investigation into climate change and urban impacts on climate devel-opment in urban regions of the Baltic Sea coast. The cities considered were Rostock and Stockholm, and their sur-rounding regions. The objectives were a) to determine whether significant changes in temperature and precipitation have oc...
To increase the resource efficiency of growing neighborhoods, multifunctional street spaces and tools for planning these spaces will be developed, tested and evaluated in the cities of Berlin, Hamburg, Neuenhagen and Solingen. A special aspect of the project is the integrative planning of traffic areas, green space and water surfaces, the location of trees, in addition to the technical infrastructure of street spaces. The task of future urban development is not only to develop land uses alongside one another, but also to join and combine uses in a multifunctional manner and thus develop space requirements and functions serving various interests. In particular, this applies to the street spaces considered in the project, which account for approx. 25% of the surface area of inner-city neighborhoods. In addition to consideration of the traffic, water management and climatic requirements, architectural heritage, health and social aspects must also be considered. Further, it must be ensured that the further development of planning/technical issues and new content is integrated into the governance processes and planning procedures of municipalities.
