Building Urban Climate Resilience
The Birmingham Urban Climate Laboratory is a near real-time, high-resolution urban meteorological network of automatic weather stations and inexpensive ‘Internet of Things’ air temperature sensors located across the city of Birmingham. The network was initially designed with a focus on monitoring urban heat impacts on infrastructure and health, but has since inspired a number of other smart city / Internet of Things projects. This seminar will showcase the ongoing work with Birmingham City Council, Amey PLC and the Railway Safety and Standards Board as we head towards the goal of improved urban climate resilience in the city.
