LECTURE + LIVE DEMONSTRATION WORKSHOP // In the complex world of outdoor environments, climate parameters, vegetation, surfaces and structures constantly interact with each other. Due to the resulting interdependencies, these elements cannot be seen isolated. All interacting elements must be analysed even if only a single climatological aspect such as air temperature is required. This is possible using Envi-Met.

Case Study and Software Workshop

The course includes an Introductory Lecture and Case Study Live Software Demonstration

Professor Dr. Michael Bruse, creator of the urban microclimate simulation platform ENVI-MET presents a LIVE case study and software workshop, including a BONUS introductory lecture on Decoding Urban Nature. The course provides access to the workshops as LIVE webinars and recordings.
