Abstract

Presently, there is a growing need for information suitable to effectively characterize the Urban Energy Budget (UEB) and, hence, to properly estimate the magnitude of the anthropogenic heat flux QF. Indeed, a precise knowledge of QF - whose implications for urban planners are still prone to large uncertainties - is fundamental for implementing effective strategies to improve thermal comfort and energy efficiency. To address this challenging issue, the Horizon 2020 URBANFLUXES project aims at developing a novel methodology for accurately estimating the different terms of the UEB based on the use of Earth Observation (EO) data and, hence, at reliably characterizing the QF spatiotemporal patterns and its implications on urban climate. In this paper, we aim at giving an overview of the EO-based products which have been identified as the most useful in the framework of the considered study. In particular, the suite which has been implemented so far in the first phase of the project includes biophysical parameters, morphology parameters as well as land-cover maps
