The Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is funding a second phase of the research programme 'Urban Climate Under Change [UC]2', which started on 1st October 2019 and will last three years. The research programme is part of the Research for Sustainable Development (FONA)
The programme consists of three modules: Module A (MOSAIK-2; further development of PALM-4U), Module B (3DO+M; evaluation and scientific application of PALM-4U; BMBF funding reference number 01LP1912) and Module C (ProPolis; operationalisation of PALM-4U). The coordinator of Module B Prof. Dr. Dieter Scherer (TU Berlin) is also the coordinator of the programme.
The joint project 3DO+M is a follow-up initiative of the joint project 'Three-dimensional observation of atmospheric processes in cities' (3DO). The new model name 3DO+M indicates, that Module B partners are focusing on sustainable research and development by continuing the evaluation of PALM-4U with three-dimensional atmospheric observational data while carrying out new, innovative and integrative model-based scientific studies.
In order to achieve the complex objectives of Module B and the entire [UC]2 programme, the specific expertise of all partners of the 12 sub-projects of 3DO+M is required, as they cover all relevant topics and methods and are located in the cities to be investigated.
Kick-Off with the partners of the joint research project 3DO+M in November 2019 in Berlin. © Chair of Climatology Technische Universität Berlin 2019
