Identifying the vulnerability of urban environments during summer heat waves
To assist cities in the implementation of climate change adaptation policies and in particular to fight against urban heat islands, the automatic SatLCZ method has been developed and validated in Metropolitan France and transposed to Rayong.
The project has thus internationalized the method developed for France, by adapting the classification to the urban contexts encountered in different case studies and by carrying out the processing chain from satellite imagery to the production of indicators, automating the process as much as possible.
