People in the Basel region are also facing more frequent, more severe heat waves, and heavier and longer periods of precipitation alternate with more extreme dry periods. In densely populated areas and in the conurbation, it sometimes becomes unbearably hot. Climate change poses challenges for the region. Solutions are therefore needed that will enable people to live together despite these drastic climate changes. For the development of such concepts to be successful, however, experts need one thing above all else: precise, reliable and close-knit collected data on the so-called microclimate, which can be used to closely record the development of weather in urban regions and then model it using the data obtained.
