Abstract

The urban heat island (UHI) is a well-known effect of urbanisation and is particularly

the future as a result of further urban growth and climate change. Demonstrating and

using available software tools. The tools developed in the LUCID (‘The Development of a

project will enable the related impacts to be better understood, quantified and addressed.

processes, local temperature, comfort, energy use and health. The UHI effect is significant

on design decisions at a variety of scales based on scientifically robust, quantitative

of urbanisation processes on local environmental conditions, and (2) quantify the impact of

inform policy but also to be able to demonstrate compliance with it.
