Urban Microclimate is a new, multi-year effort by the Building Technology Program at MIT to predict local effects of neighboring buildings and landscape on such climatic conditions as ambient temperature and relative humidity, solar radiation, and wind. The effort includes a measurement campaign, tool development and explorations of the influence of urban microclimatic effects on building design and urban planning decisions. The overall effort is funded through a variety of agencies including Singapore National Research Foundation through the Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology and the US Department of Energy's Energy Efficient Buildings HUB.
