CLUDEX will examine the microclimate impact through large scale urban densification by building height increase. Building height growth to height zoning limits will be modelled in an urban district in Vienna. Microclimate conditions will be simulated under current and future climate - and building height conditions by exploring wind fields and temperature distribution during heat wave periods. Building improvement will be analysed and alternatives discussed. Stakeholders will be involved for defining adaptation measures coping better with heat increase.

The Project develops an Austrian Data Cube (ADC) for optimum storage, Administration, Analyse and Management of Earth Observation (EO) data from Sentinel-1 (microwaves) and Sentinel-2 (optical) in an homogenous projection. This concerns both, the spatial projection as well as the temporal Resolution. For the first time, the Project adresses the Integration of optical and microwave data. This Permits users from science, Administration as well as Commercial users to run analyses in a seamless way. The possible applications are numerous and encompass drought Monitoring, Monitoring of soil moisture, mapping of land use and land cover etc.
