Abstract [en]

Climate is a basic component of the human environment. Developments in building design and indoor climate control have contributed greatly to improving human health and comfort. By contrast, the possibilities for improving urban climatic conditions by deliberate planning have been poorly exploited. The structure and processes of the urban atmosphere in extratropical regions are briefly described. The impact of certain selected urban climates on human health is summarized. The need for relevant bioclimatological "design tools" for applications in urban planning is stressed, followed by a brief review of some recent work on human thermal comfort. It is argued that the modification of present day comfort criteria to reflect human adaptation to climate may be important for further improvements of indoor climate. as well as for deducing the emissions of air pollutants and greenhouse gases.
