  1. 1. Heat Stress at Playgrounds A case Study in Gothenburg, Sweden

    Master-uppsats, Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Författare :Johanna Rasmussen; [2023-08-17]
    Nyckelord :Heat Stress; Thermal Comfort; Tmrt; SOLWEIG; TreePlanter; Children; Playgrounds;

    Sammanfattning : The climate will change in the future as it will become warmer with higher temperatures generating extreme weather events such as heat waves. Children are a particularly vulnerable group when it comes to being exposed to heat which is partly due to the fact that they have a harder time thermoregulating themselves. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Trees as heat stress mitigators. The frequency of heat and cold stress in a redevelopment area in Borås, Sweden

    Master-uppsats, Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Författare :Simon Wiklund Wagersten; [2023-06-22]
    Nyckelord :Cold stress; heat stress; SOLWEIG; thermal comfort; TreePlanter;

    Sammanfattning : As future climate is predicted to generate higher temperatures as well as more frequent extreme weather scenarios, it is essential to plan to mitigate the effects of climate change. In an attempt to mitigate one effect of climate change, this master’s thesis examines both the heat and cold stress at the area Pulsen in Borås Stad, both as the conditions are today, and after the implementation of a new detail plan.

    Master-uppsats, Göteborgs universitet / Institutionen för biologi och miljövetenskap

    Författare :Robert Klein; [2023-01-19]
    Nyckelord :urban climate; heat stress; mean radiant temperature; SOLWEIG; urban vegetation; urban planning;

    Sammanfattning : Old adults are particularly vulnerable against heat stress. Considering the ageing society and the projected increase of heat events, planning for heat-resilient urban environments for old adults will become increasingly important. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Modelling façade temperature using meteorological data

    Master-uppsats, Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Författare :Erik Maesel; [2022-09-01]
    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : Urbanization has increased drastically during the last century, and in 2007, the urban population exceeded that of the rural. Urban areas tend to be warmer than those of its surrounding due to the urban heat island effect (UHI) which can bring harmful effects to people living in urban areas. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Outdoor thermal comfort in Drottninghög, Helsingborg: a study on the effects of urban densification in a warmer climate

    Kandidat-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Författare :Daniel Erlström; [2020]
    Nyckelord :Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : Extreme heat can lead to a significant increase in mortality, especially for urban citizens. Densification of urban areas can dramatically affect the local climate of the city by replacing green areas with impermeable materials and changing both radiative and turbulent fluxes. LÄS MER
