Asian Urban Meteorology and Climate

Edited by: Johnny Chan, Jimmy Fung

Over half of the world's population reside in urban areas, particularly in Asian countries and its percentage continues to increase. A conference co-organised by City University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and Asian Network for Climate Science and Technology (ANCST) was held in May 2017 to discuss recent research on urban meteorology and climate in growing Asian cities, especially in relation to air pollution and land-use change and its impact on weather and climate, urban flooding and water availability. This thematic collection is for papers presented at the conference or on a similar topic.
