Klimaanalyse der Region Basel


Analysis of the Regional Climate of Basel/Switzerland

In January 1995, a project called KABA (Klimaanalyse der Region Basel) started as a joint venture of the MCR Lab and governmental authorities for air quality control and urban/regional planning. Main objective was to design maps covering the trinational region of Basel (Switzerland, Germany and France) with a size of 51 x 33 km².

The first type of map displays the functional aspects of the physio- and sociographic settings for the regional climate, and therefore represents the basic climatic conditions of the study site. The second one contains site -specific planning objectives for planning authorities enabling them to consider specific features of planning processes influencing the regional climate and air quality an vice versa.
