Climate change and urbanization put the environmental quality of cities under pressure. Urban trees are important contributors to urban climate adaptation. However it is currently unclear which three species will be the best to play this role in future climate conditions. Therefore it is crucial to quantify and renew the knowledge about the meteorological conditions under which trees have to function. Within the context of the CSI Trees project you will develop two climate maps (for The Netherlands and for Europe) representing the winter hardness conditions for trees using recent micrometeorological observations and the local climate zone classification. You will document the results in a journal paper.
