The goal of the URCLIM project (www.urclim.eu) is to prove a concept: the realization of Integrated Urban Climate Services (IUCS) for urban planners and related stakeholders using local urban and climate data from multiple open-data sources. A general methodology to produce UCS and to evaluate the associated uncertainties is being developed within the URCLIM project.
In order to achieve the project goal, the project has 4 scientific objectives:
1)to develop a methodology for the creation of high-resolution maps of urban parameters for climate studies,
2)to analyze the propagation of uncertainty from regional climate models to urban-scale climate models and local impact models,
3)to evaluate multi-criteria impacts and various types of adaptation strategies,
4)to define pertinent Urban Climate Services in cooperation with stakeholders, and using a visualization interface.
