ADMS-Urban Temperature and Humidity Model Study of London`s Olympic Parkland
Dr Jenny Stocker (CERC) co-authored a recently published journal article that explores the sensitivities of the ADMS-Urban Temperature and Humidity model predictions of local urban temperatures to input parameters, using London's Olympic parkland as a case study. In particular, the land use parameters were modified to reflect building materials as well as functional types, causing up to 3°C differences in modelled temperatures; also, the sensitivity of local temperatures to wind speed was assessed. Further work will be carried out to evaluate the input parameters against temperature measurements in Kuala Lumpur under the project Disaster Resilient Cities: Forecasting Local Level Climate Extremes and Physical Hazards for Kuala Lumpur. The paper is freely available online.
