Nektarios Chrysoulakis presented an overview of the URBANFLUXES project, explaining the main idea behind URBANFLUXES and focused on explaining the project vision.
Mattia Marconcini presented the large variety of the Earth Observation products developed within the project to be used for the urban heat fluxes estimations.
Zina Mitraka presented the recent finding of the team regarding the Local Climate Zones.
Christian Feigenwinter presented the recent finding on turbulent heat fluxes estimations for the cities.
Ahmad Al Bitar presented the Discrete Anisotropic Radiative Transfer (DART) model and explained its use for estimating the net-all-wave radiation fluxes.
The team had the chance to discuss thoroughly the current findings in the field of urban heat fluxes with many researchers throughout the conference and particularly in the dedicated poster session.
