Urban Climate Science

Designing resilient human settlements responding to climate change needs an integrated framework. Heightened public awareness of extreme weather crises and demands for a more moral climate landscape has promoted the discussion of urban climate change ethics. Communities can greatly diminish their vulnerabilities under climate extremes and enhance their resilience through appropriate design and planning towards long-term stability. This special issue will bring together leading climate and urban scientists and scholars in related disciplines to share their research on challenges and solutions of urban climate science with a computational perspective.

This special issue will place an emphasis on the development of computational frameworks, methods and good case studies of tackling key research challenges related to Urban Climate Science.
