I am trying to use the urban cooling model in a part of my dissertation and I am currently refining the urban cooling parameters. I’m a little bit skeptical about the “Air Temperature Maximum Blending Distance” parameter that the model requieres. I’ve look out for some questions about air mixing here in the forum and I found a topic that recommended reading Shatz & Kucharik 2015 and Shatz & Kucharik 2014 but I’m still having difficulties. I was wondering, as it is a very uncertain parameter, if the developers or someone who has used the model could make any recommendations on how to extrapolate this air mixing parameter from some data that is easier to find in the literature, such as the wind speed for example. Any idea will also helpful!
