New Cordex Project: URBan environments and Regional Climate Change (URB-RCC)

Monday, 31 May 2021 11:18

The Urban Climate group scienties Benjamin Bechtel and Matthias Demuzere joined the Cordex Project URBan environments and Regional Climate Change (URB-RCC). The main goal of this CORDEX Flagship Pilot Studies (FPS) project is to understand the effect of urban areas on the regional climate, as well as the impact of regional climate change on cities, with the help of coordinated experiments with urbanized RCMs.

The project started off this year and will continue until 2025. This project can be supported by – and contributing to – Special IPCC Assessment Report planned for cities after AR6, WCRP Grand Challenges – Weather and Climate Extremes – on local scale, and SDG (Sustainable Development Goal) on sustainable cities (#11), climate action (#13) and health (#3), providing information for risk management in these aspects to urban stakeholders.
