Summer 2017:

3DO (Module B) operates its first summer intense observation period in Berlin, Hamburg and Stuttgart

In July, August and September, 3DO operated the first summer intense observation period (IOP) in the cities of Berlin, Hamburg and Stuttgart. The observational data sets are required to test and assess the performance of the new urban climate model PALM-4U, which is under development in MOSAIK (Module A). For further information visit the 3DO website.

Kick-off 2017:

Flying wings and multicopters above Berlin and Stuttgart

In January and February, 3DO (module B) ran the first intensive observation campain ´winter´ in the partner cities Berlin, Hamburg and Stuttgart. The measurement flights with unmanned aerial vehicles in Berlin and Stuttgart were particularly exciting. Project partners of the University of Augsburg and Leibniz Universität Hannover sent up their flying wings and multicopters to measure air temperature, humidity and wind up to 250 m height.

MOSAIK introduced PALM to project partners

MOSAIK (module A) hosted a PALM seminar in October 2016 to introduce the Parallelized Large-Eddy Simulation Model for Atmospheric and Oceanic Flows (PALM) to project partners of all modules. PALM will be the basis for the new urban climate model, which MOSAIK aims to develop within the BMBF research programme.


Dialog workshops in partner cities

KliMoPrax and UseUClim (module C) organised dialog workshops in different partner cities. Communal practitioning partners could discuss their demands for applications of the new urban climate model with project partners. Module C aims to ensure practicability and user serviceability of the new urban climate model to foster climate proof urban development.

Up to date UseUClim is offering an online survey for potential users of the new urban climate model to identify user needs.
