Evapotranspiration (ET) is a crucial component of urban greening initiatives of cities worldwide aimed at mitigating urban heat island effect. However, ET estimation methods in urban areas have so far been limited. The research will focus on heat and vapor fluxes at the soil-vegetation-atmosphere interface. The main objective is to model and to understand the spatial and temporal patterns of ET in urban areas on different scales. Observations will be obtained using drone and satellite based remote sensing, in-situ sensors, and sampling. The effect of different climate scenarios and urban greening strategies on water demand and cooling effects will be investigated by using AI and SCOPE model. The project is part of the DFG Research Training Group Urban Water Interfaces
