Abstract: The world’s urban population is expected to increase over the coming decades. To maintain and improve the health and well-being of urban citizens, it is important to increase our knowledge and develop methods for evaluating the urban thermal environment to support urban planning. The aim of this thesis is to develop and improve the modelling of the urban thermal environment, particularly enabling modelling to be done using readily available data and hardware. The thesis has four parts. The first... more
