MEETING SUMMARIES INCLUSION OF URBAN LANDSCAPE IN A CLIMATE MODEL How Can Satellite Data Help? BY MENGU N JI N AND J . MARSHALL SHEPHERD rban regions, which cover only approximately AGU MEETING SESSION—HUMAN-INDUCED 0.2% o f th e earth's land surface, contain about half o f the human population (UNPD 2001). CLIMATE VARIATIONS LINKED TO URBANIZATION: Modeling urban weather and climate is critical for FROM OBSERVATIONS TO MODELING human welfare, but has been hampered for at least two reasons: i) no urban landscape has been included What : The unique radiative characteristics of urban in global and regional climate models (GCMs and land cover are now being observed by satel- lites, with consequent improvements possible in RCMs , respectively), and ii) detailed information surface schemes of climate models on urban characteristics is hard to obtain. With When : 12 Decembe r 2003 the advance of satellite observations, adding urban Where : San Francisco, California schemes into climate models in order to scale pro- jection s of global/regional climate to urban areas becomes essential.
