The project idea
Implementation of a forecAsting System for urban heaT Island effect for the development of urban adaptation strategies.
Pilot UHI forecasting systems in two cities, a web-based open access portal & long-term adaptation tools and contribution to EU adaptation strategy.
Live forecast data
The LIFE ASTI application provides short-term forecast and future projection of the UHI phenomenon in three Mediterranean cities.
The project LIFE ASTI will lead to a substantial contribution to the overall aim of the EU Adaptation Strategy by developing policies for a better adaptation to UHI impacts, especially during summer heat waves, reducing the heat wave risk in metropolitan areas by introducing heat prevention services, and better-implementing energy efficiency guidelines in European cities. The two Mediterranean cities were chosen to give a representative geographical coverage, to reflect different environmental conditions and to support one of the major EU policy priorities for joint forces and transnational cooperation.
