Project Coolbit, is an ongoing investigation that aims to create a personalised approach to assessing thermal comfort and preventing health complications during extreme heat events. It is research that could not only save the lives of individuals but may also change the way we design future cities.
This study aims to evaluate the air temperature data crowdsourced from such sensing units, Netatmo’ citizen weather stations (CWS), used at multiple locations around Sydney area and analyse its application for monitoring the urban climate in this region.
this talk will address methods in which urban microclimatology can be employed as the key tool for a) understanding the pedestrian-/street-scale phenomena and processes, b) providing methodologies for climate-conscious design solutions, and c) informing accurate assessments of mesoscale climate.
