One solution

Characterize and anticipate climate phenomena such as extreme events, heat islands, thermal stresses, floods, air pollution, and drought—on an urban micro-scale—by analyzing in three dimensions (3D) the influence of global climate change and the impacts of human activity on the atmosphere and on the micro-climate of cities.

Operator of an airborne climate measurement network: the Climate Birds network.

Customized solutions

Based on the meteoblue system and the “C-Birds One” demonstrator

On a micro-scale, in targeted urban areas, assessing future climate hazards and trends in terms of heat islands, thermal stresses, precipitation, air pollution, drought, etc.

Specific dedicated projects / Consulting and ad hoc expertise

Based on the Climate Birds observation network

Over an entire city or metropolis, modeling climate risks at micro-scale (by district) in the medium and long term, evaluating the impact of envisaged solutions to the identified risks.

Two occupations

01. Adapt cities to climate change

Outline the climate trends of a given city in the short- to mid- term, taking into account:

  • The climate history of the city,
  • The geography and urban shape,
  • The evolution of key parameters such as temperature, rainfall, winds, nebulosity, radiant fluxes, and evapotranspiration,
  • The impact of variability and climate change upon human activities and health.

DELIVERABLE: A climate profile of the city, the main risks to expect in the near future, and decisions to implement into the adaptation scheme. All available in a confidential report supported by scientific material.

Provide forecasts of extreme climate events in the mid- to long term that could impact a city:

  • By using a permanent observation network on the ground and in the boundary layer of the atmosphere to monitor the variability of different climate parameters (Climate Birds and the meteoblue network),
  • Model the data sets in an application dedicated to the analysis of the urban micro-climate.

DELIVERABLE: An urban map of climate events and their frequencies will be released via a secured information platform. Through the model, assessing the capacity for adaptation would be tested.  

02. Anticipate climate risks on an urban micro-scale

Model the climate for a given district using an automatic scientific approach:

  • Use an urban climate model that takes into account all the local elements that can have an impact on the local climate , such as buildings, ground cover, green surfaces, anthropogenic activities, geography and orography,
  • Analyze global, regional, and local historical climate data that has an impact on urban microscale climates. Complement with real-time analyses of climate parameters,
  • Deploy an observation network to monitor the earth’s surface and the atmospheric boundary layer (Climate Birds and Meteoblue networks).

DELIVERABLE: a synthesis of climate events linked to the district, including trends and solutions to help minimizing climate impact.
