Climate Model Berlin - Planning Advices Urban Climate 2015

Statistical Base

The application of the climate model Berlin in its current version is based on the following components building upon one another:

  1. the evaluation of long-term operation of measurement stations in Berlin and Potsdam as the basis for calibrating the model results (04.13, long-term development of selected climatic parameters, SenStadtUm 2015a).
  2. extensive analysis steps for working out a well-founded data basis (04.10 Climate Model Berlin – Analysis Maps), as well as
  3. the preparation of three planning advice maps that supplement one another.

Following data bases were used mainly for conducting the process steps 2 and 3:

  • GEO-NET Umweltconsulting GmbH, Hanover: GIS supported modelling of parameters relevant for urban climate based on high-resolution building and vegetation data; EFRE project 027 Urban climate Berlin (SenStadtUm 2015b),
