Detailed Spatial Modeling of Temperature in Moscow

A. V. Kislov and P. I. Konstantinov

A computer complex is described developed for the detailed temperature forecasting in large megalopolises. It consists of the global and microclimatic models implementing the modeling of the thermal regime within Moscow. To increase the modeling quality, an improved technique is proposed of computation of temperature characteristics within the urban canyon. A spatial resolution of output modeling data reaches 500 m. A comparison with the station data demonstrates that the accuracy of air temperature simulation in Moscow and in its nearest vicinities is quite satisfactory.
