7S0X0 - Urban Physics: wind, acoustics, insolation and precipitation

The increasing urbanization, traffic and the increasing requirements of health and comfort in the context of complex energetic, ecologic and ecnomonic boundary conditions, put ever higher demands on the quality of the climate. Urban physics deals with the interaction of the outdoor climate with cities and the people living and working in these cities, and with problems as wind, heat stress, air pollution and noise, often caused by the way in which buildings and cities are designed and operatied.
