Mobile measurements in Ghent 20 August 2012

Saturday night, August the 18th, was the second hottest night in Belgium since the start of the observations, with temperatures at Uccle not dropping below 23 °C. Reason enough for the Urban Climate Lab to drive a number of transsects through the Belgian city of Ghent for a quickscan of the air temperature distribution. The results of these measurements will be used to complement the results from our heat map project for the city of Ghent.
