Abstract Historically, the urban climate and its interaction with regional environment and larger-scale meteorological phenomena have been studied by comparing weather stations in urban and surrounding rural areas. Nevertheless, spatialized meteorological data are now available with different spatial resolutions, temporal frequencies, and time depths. Here with the Paris area as a case study, three products…Continue reading Long time series spatialized data for urban climatological studies, in International Journal of Climatolology
