                  LCZ Framework

                  [Watch an introductory video lecture to the Local Climate Zones scheme by Iain Stewart here]

                  The LCZ framework combines four components of the urban landscape:

                  Component 1:? Height of Roughness Features



                  Component 2:? Packing of Roughness Features

                  component 2


                  Component 3:? Surface Cover Around Roughness Features


                  Component 4:? Thermal Admittance of Materials
