[HSC07-P01] City development adaptation towards heat wave event: A scenario study in Hong Kong
Keywords:WRF, urban climate, heat wave event, urban heat island, urbanization
The chosen simulation period is typical summer hot season in Hong Kong. Hong Kong is being influenced by the ridge of high pressure system during this period. In order to take anthropogenic heating and building influences into account, urban-WRF is configured to run with the Building Environment Parameterization and the Building Energy Model (BEP-BEM). There are three simulated scenarios, they are increased building height (30% higher) scenario, urban area expansion (30% more grids categorized as urban in Hong Kong) scenario and a control run for comparison. Comparisons of meteorological parameters, such as temperature, lower surface wind and heat index, will be discussed between the scenario runs and the control.
