|A city's heat island is a function of meteorological factors (air temperature, precipitation, solar radiation, cloud cover, airflow, evapotranspiration) and the character of the city itself. Compared to rural landscapes, temperatures in cities can be up to 10 °C higher at night, which has direct implications not only for human health but also for economic consequences. There is an increase in exposure both in terms of the number of people exposed and the duration of exposure. The aim of the project is to analyse these factors and to propose appropriate prevention and mitigation strategies.
