RAMSES modelling shows Antwerp park cools the city by 0.5°C
The report D4.3 entitled “Urban adaptation effects on urban climate” of RAMSES contains the results of advanced numerical modelling and on-site measurements conducted in the cities of Antwerp, Paris and Delhi at the mesoscale, and in Antwerp and Bilbao at the microscale. It was found that the presence of large park in the city center of Antwerp gives a cooling benefit of up to 0.5°C.
The first RAMSES Policy brief summarises the most relevant findings of the project so far drawing high-level policy recommendations from them
