Conference theme: Archtecture nd the envronment Keywords: n mcroclmte; computer modellng; wether sttons; Adelde INTRODUCTION Dfferences between the cty nd the rurl surroundngs occur on two dstnct scles (Oke, 1976: The n cnopy lyer conssts of r contned between the n roughness elements, typclly buldngs. Its clmte s domnted by the nture of the mmedte surroundngs, especlly ste mterls nd geory. The n boundry lyer s tht porton of the plnetry boundry lyer whose chrcterstcs re ffected by the presence of n n re t ts lowest boundry, generlly consdered to be pproxmtely t roof level. Severl models hve been developed over the yers n n ttempt to descrbe mcroclmtc condtons n the n cnopy lyer. A comprehensve revew of n clmte smulton models (Bornsten, 1984 noted tht " potentlly mportnt use of such models could be n plnnng of n development so s to crete n clmtes tht re more helthy or n dwellers." Indeed, Clrke (1993 dentfed mcroclmte nd ste specfc dt s one of the problem res defnng boundry condtons for buldng performnce smultons. Despte ths mpertve few comprehensve n clmte smulton models exst whch focus drectly on the ssues of mportnce for buldng therml performnce smulton. Shrln & Hoffmn (1984 nd Swd & Hoffmn (1990 descrbed the development of smulton model bsed on CTTC (Cluster Therml Tme Constnt prer to predct n tempertures s functon of some bsc n geory. The objectve of the reserch reported here ws to nvestgte whether reltvely smple uncoupled model of the temperture n the n cnopy,.e. model n whch there s no feedbck from the mcroscle ste to the mesoscle n boundry lyer, cn nonetheless predct the temperture t gven ste wth suffcent ccurcy to be useful tool for reserch on the effects of n form on r temperture n the n cnopy lyer. 1. SIMULATION The CAT (Cnyon Ar Temperture model predcts r temperture n n n cnyon on the bss of mesured eorologcl prers from reference stton locted t nerby ste exposed to the sme mesoscle clmtc condtons. Model nputs re lmted to eorologcl prers montored routnely t stndrd wether sttons. Ths restrcton hs mportnt mplctons tht wll be dscussed n detl n the relevnt sectons below. In the trdtonl pproch to numercl modellng of the mcroclmtc chrcterstcs of the n cnopy lyer, wether dt re used to provde geogrphcllydjusted ntl nd boundry condtons to plnetry boundry lyer (PBL model, such s URMICLEM (Th, The mesoscle eorologcl condtons predcted by such model, n conjuncton wth detled stespecfc descrptors, re used to drve n n clmte model cpble of provdng mcroscle tempertures t the ste under consderton. Ths pproch s bsed on complete nlyss of the energy fluxes, but requres detled clmtc nformton tht s generlly not vlble n typcl wether sttons. The CAT model dopts smpler pproch: the rw wether dt tself serves s the nput to the n clmte model, scrfcng comprehensve nlyss n the nterests of prctclty nd ese of pplcton. Ths pproch ws the bss of the modfed CTTC computer code (Elnhs nd Wllmson, 1997, n nlytcl model ncorportng cluster therml tme constnt for predctng r temperture vrtons n the n cnopy lyer. Itself n extended verson of prevous model orgnlly proposed by Swd & Hoffmn (1990, ths model predcted r temperture t n n pont bsed on mesured temperture t rurl reference ste, modfed by the contrbuton of chrcterstclly n condtons. The conceptul bss for ths converson ws stted by Elnhs & Wllmson (1997 s follows: 210
2 T = T + T " T (1 b b sol sol lw T = T + T " T (2 lw where T (t refers to r temperture t gven locton, T b the mesoscle bse temperture, nd T sol nd T lw the net short wve nd long wve rdtve contrbuton to the locl temperture. The subscrpts nd refer to n nd eorologcl (reference loctons, respectvely. Combnng the bove expressons yelds: T = T + ( Tsol " Tsol " ( Tlw " Tlw (3 The bove procedure ttrbuted the vrton n r temperture to dfferences n short wve nd long wve energy blnces between the n ste nd the eorologcl (reference ste. However, the sme hod my be employed to express dfferences resultng from other modfers of locl mcroclmtc condtons, such s, for exmple, nthropogenc het, the hydrologcl blnce or the effects of vegetton, whch my ffect ltent het. The CAT model dopts smlr conceptul pproch, but employs dfferent hodology to compute T b, the mesoscle bse temperture, nd then to predct cnyon r temperture. The process my be summrsed s follows: An energy blnce s clculted from eorologcl tme seres for the reference ste nd for ech surfce of the n cnyon, tkng nto ccount modfctons to the energy exchnge processes resultng from the specfc chrcterstcs of both stes. The effect of sensble het flux t the surfce on r temperture t the reference ste s then clculted on the bss of the surfce het exchnge coeffcent h c nd new emprcl coeffcent of tulent het trnsfer between the cnopy lyer nd the roughness sublyer bove. The tmedependent contrbuton of the locl sensble het flux to the r temperture t the reference ste s then deducted from the mesured vlue to gve T b, the mesoscle bse temperture. The sme hodology s then used to clculte the ensemble contrbuton to the locl cnyon r temperture of sensble het flux from ll cnyon surfces, smlrly modfed by (dfferent coeffcent of tulent het trnsfer between the r n the cnyon nd the roughness sublyer bove. Ths contrbuton s then dded to the bse temperture to gve the predcted r temperture n the cnyon. Inputs requred by the model comprse two seprte ctegores: Tme seres descrbng eorologcl condtons t the reference ste, ncludng the dry bulb temperture of r, reltve humdty, wnd speed, globl nd dffuse solr rdton on horzontl plne nd cloud cover. Descrptors of both the reference ste nd the n ste beng smulted, ncludng: geogrphc locton (lttude nd longtude; buldng geory, ncludng street cnyon spect rto, buldng densty nd rto of mssve externl wlls to ste re; mterl propertes, ncludng surfce lbedo nd the coeffcents of the objectve hysteress model (OHM of therml storge (Grmmond et l., 1991; nd hydrologcl fctors ffectng the prcellng of tulent het flux nto ltent het nd sensble, ncludng the coeffcents of the LUMPS model by Grmmond nd Oke (2002. The georc representton of the n envronment s twondhlfdmensonl: cnyon dmensons re gven only n crosssecton (length n the drecton of the mn longtudnl xs s consdered semnfnte. However, tretment of ncnyon wnd s fully threedmensonl, s s the ncorporton of solr poston n the computton of shortwve rdnt exchnge. The CAT model trets ech of the followng fctors components of the het blnce s follows: 1.1. Rdtve exchnges Net rdton (Q* my be mesured drectly, but s not usully montored n stndrd eorologcl stton. Furthermore, net rdnt exchnge depends on the orentton of the relevnt surfce, ts ngle of tlt wth respect to the horzon nd ts degree of exposure to drect solr rdton, to the sky nd to other terrestrl surfces. The CAT model therefore utlses more commonly vlble dt  globl solr rdton nd dffuse solr rdton, both on n unobstructed horzontl surfce, nd cloud cover, ll recorded t the reference stton. Net rdnt exchnge t the reference stton nd on ech surfce n the n cnyon s then clculted on the bss of solr geory nd the respectve vew fctors of the prtcptng surfces. Incomng drect norml (bem solr rdton s clculted from mesured globl rdton nd dffuse rdton, tkng nto ccount solr elevton. Bem rdton s then used to clculte the drect component on buldng surfces, wth respect to orentton nd mutul shdng by other cnyon surfces. The proporton of ech surfce exposed to drect rdton s clculted usng model tht llows nput of seprte (dfferent vlues for ech cnyon wll. In ddton, the heght nd setbck of djcent buldngs my be nput to ccount for obstructons creted by buldngs tht re much tller thn those formng the prmry cnyon perer, or for tower blocks constructed on podum tht comprses the ctul cnyon wlls. Cnyon surfces not exposed to drect solr rdton, ncludng portons of exposed surfces shded by djcent wlls, re consdered s beng llumnted by dffuse rdton nd by reflected rdton only, n proporton to the respectve vew fctors for ech of the source res. The tmedependent totl solr rdnt flux on the th cnyon surfce recevng drect solr rdton s well s reflected rdton from j other cnyon surfces s thus gven by the followng expresson: I dr+ df j(1 " m j (# " j j I = I (1 " PSA( t + I # + dr df (4 where I (t s the men hourly totl solr rdton ncdent on the surfce (W m 2, PSA s the prtl shded frcton of the surfce, I dr(t the hourly men unobstructed drect component of the solr rdton, I df(t the hourly men unobstructed dffuse component of the solr rdton, I dr+df(t the combned drect nd dffuse components of the solr rdton, the vew fctor between two surfces, m j the solr bsorptvty of surfce j (W m 2 o K nd s the men sky vew fctor for surfce.

However, CFD requres very detled nput, nd s stll too demndng on computer resources to smulte extended perods.

Ths procedure my only be crred out f the contrbuton of nthropogenc het to temperture dfferences between the loctons s smll. The CAT model, n common wth mny models of the n mcroclmte, ssumes tht net dvectve het trnsfer wthn the n re s neglgble. It s therefore pplcble where buldng densty, typology nd ground cover n the source re for energy fluxes re unform. However, the presence of n prks or lrge vrtons n buldng heght nd street sectons n close proxmty to the cnyon beng modelled my result n errors whose 214

The CAT model s lso ncpble of nlysng dfferences between the reference ste nd the n cnyon resultng from mesoscle propertes of the stes such s topogrphy, elevton, dstnce from lrge body of wter (f pplcble etc. CONCLUSIONS The CAT model demonstrtes tht reltvely smple nlytcl model of the n cnyon cn provde estmtes of r temperture tht re substntl mprovements over the trvl cse of usng unprocessed dt from reference wether stton. However, the model n ts current form s stll lmted, especlly wth respect to the types of n morphology t my be ppled to. It hs lso not been tested gnst feld dt from loctons other thn Adelde, whch my hve substntlly dfferent mcroclmtes. It therefore remns to be seen whether the emprcl clbrton fctors deduced from the Adelde dt my be ppled elsewhere. If these restrctons cn be overcome, the CAT computer model s seen s hvng severl prctcl pplctons: Evluton of the mcroclmtc effects of proposed plnnng regultons concernng lnd use nd buldng densty n new or exstng n development; Evluton of chnges to the mcroclmtc condtons t specfc n loctons s result of proposed chnges such s new constructon; Use s reserch tool for exmnng vrous n confgurtons n terms of ther effect on pedestrns nd on consumpton of energy n buldngs.
