  1. 1. Behaviours of older adults in urban outdoor environments during warm days

    Master-uppsats, Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Författare :Sandra Lujic; [2023-08-18]
    Nyckelord :Older adults; urban outdoor environments; behaviour; preferences; thermal comfort;

    Sammanfattning : As a result of climate change, heat waves are expected to increase in frequency, duration, and severity, which is particularly threatening to the urban population. Vulnerable groups, including the older population, are more likely to be affected by adverse health effects due to heat exposure. LÄS MER

  2. 2. 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

  3. 3. 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 :Ivan Ruzic; [2023-06-21]
    Nyckelord :heat wave; urban trees; NDVI; remote sensing;

    Sammanfattning : Urban vegetation plays a crucial role in diverse urban microclimates. The numerous ecosystem services provided by vegetation, particularly trees, ensure greater quality of life and thermal comfort regulation. Yet, not all trees are immune to extreme weather events, such as droughts and heat waves, especially in cities. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Energy retrofitting effect on perceived indoor climate: A case study of Estonian multi-family buildings

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Energi och byggnadsdesign; Lunds universitet/Institutionen för arkitektur och byggd miljö

    Författare :Kadri Reinumägi; [2023]
    Nyckelord :Indoor environment; Thermal comfort; Indoor Air Quality; Window airing habits; Energy renovation; Occupant survey; Technology and Engineering;

    Sammanfattning : Energy renovations are an important measure for achieving the European Union’s target of climate neutrality by 2050. To meet the EU goal, Estonia needs to fully renovate 14 000 multi-family buildings by that time, affecting the indoor environment conditions of a large number of people. LÄS MER
