Bamberg im Klimawandel

Verein "Bewahrt die Bergstadt" Stephanshof, 16. Januar 2019, 20:00 Uhr, Kapitelsaal

Der Klimawandel in Folge der raschen Erderwärmung ist auch in Bamberg zunehmend spür- und sichtbar, und die Erkenntnisse der Wissenschaft zur weiteren Entwicklung sind besorgniserregend. Was wir gegenwärtig schon sehen und was uns in naher Zukunft erwartet, wird im Vortrag dargelegt. Die Handlungsstrategien zum Umgang mit dem Klimawandel im Stadtgebiet sollen aufgezeigt und diskutiert werden. Stichworte für die künftige Stadtpolitik sind unter anderem: Erhalt von Frischluftschneisen, Flächenmanagement und Flächenentsiegelung, Stadtgrün.


Springer Handbook of Atmospheric Measurements

Editor: Thomas Foken

The topic of measurements in the atmosphere is not only of interest to the meteorologist and for the purpose of weather forecasting and climate research but also increasingly important in environmental physics and ecology. The book covers more than just the classical meteorological measurements and is divided into five parts: basics of measurements, classical in-situ measurements, remote sensing techniques for ground-based and aircraft- or space-based application, and complex measurements and methods that use different techniques. As well, a short link is made to measurements in the soil, in the water, at plants, and in the urban and rural environment, which are more and more necessary for observation of the interfaces to other geosystems. The knowledge of many scientists who are specialists in this field or who have had a great influence on the development of these techniques will be made available for the reader of this book. The book will be absolutely essential for all students, researchers, and technicians making measurements in the atmosphere and the adjacent environments or interpreting data, or those using these data in modelling studies. It will include a large number of tables with physical data, sensors and system characteristics, as well as numerous figures and schematics.

The book will be published in summer 2020
