The illustrated results for the Climate Model Berlin were calculated using the regional climate model FITNAH (Flow Over Irregular Terrain With Natural And Anthropogenic Heat Sources). The fundamental goal of the investigation was to make a prognosis of the changes of the climatic circumstances in Berlin’s urban structures and editing the results for planning issues in these both evaluation maps.

The FITNAH model calculates meteorological parameters on a three-dimensional reticule. The present evaluation maps were executed at a grid resolution of 200 x 200 m and displayed in an own cartography 04.10.

The Planning Advices Map integrates the assessment of the Climate Functions Map with regard to concerns relevant to planning. With its help protection and development procedures to improve the climate can be derived, as well as effects of dilution and remove to improve the air quality.

The main idea of these endevours correspond with the aims of

climatic and immission-ecologically important surface structures. 

The associated planning advices disclose the sensitivity regarding utilisation modifications, from which climatically based requirements and procedures in terms of spatial planning can be derived.
