Explanations and Imprint of the Map
  1. To assess the local impact of climate change for Berlin a cooperation agreement concluded in early 2008 between the Deutscher Wetterdienst (DWD), Climate and Environmental Consultancy Department, and the Berlin State Senate Department for Urban Development, Geo-Information Section, Office of City and Environment Information System, which was successfully completed at the beginning of 2010.
  2. The approach of the maps and data presented here was thus to address the question as to how thermal conditions might develop in Berlin, on the basis of information and model data existing today. This is also of special interest because it must be assumed that areas of the city that are not yet affected by thermal load will very likely be subjected to much higher summertime temperatures during the coming decades, due to continued climate warming. This applies both to expected absolute temperature peaks and to the duration of heat waves.
  3. The goal was thus essentially to take stock of the expected climate impacts, particularly in built-up areas, where the vulnerability of city dwellers - and especially older inhabitants - is the greatest.
  4. The methodology for studying the possible impacts of global climate change at a local level is still a new area of research: it is not at all standardized, and therefore the interpretation of results always involves certain uncertainty factors.
