Incorporating spatial and temporal variations of advected moisture in the canyon air temperature (CAT) model.
Paper i proceeding, 2009
CAT (Canyon Air Temperature) is a parametric model that predicts site-specific air temperature in an urban street
canyon for extended periods on the basis of data from a reference station in the region. A method is described for
incorporating spatial and temporal variations in advected moisture, allowing application of the model with no prior
knowledge of moisture availability in the area. The revised model is tested against data from field experiments in
Gothenburg and Adelaide, in all seasons and in a variety of atmospheric conditions.
