Climate Models for Practice (KliMoPrax) / Review of practical and user serviceability of an urban climate model to foster climate proof urban development (UseUClim)

Project Objectives
Results of the city climate model should not only provide reliable statements for a large number of specific applications, but also take into account the demands placed on the computer infrastructure and the knowledge of potential users. In order to ensure the fulfillment of the requirements of the users, selected application examples and user circles are integrated directly into the model development and measurement data collection.

With workshops and surveys in different project phases, on the one hand the user requirements are determined and, on the other hand, two test phases are used to check whether these requirements are met by the model to be developed. In addition, training courses are offered to familiarize prospective users with the use of the model, identify further development requirements and thus contribute to the continuous development of the model. The necessary and intensive cooperation with the potential users from the local community and the economy is ensured through the involvement of subcontractors from the areas mentioned.
