Exploring High-Resolution Historic Weather Data Sources for Urban Climate Studies Beyond ERA5

Urban climate studies require high-resolution historical weather data to investigate the impact of urbanization on local weather patterns. The European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) provides one of the most comprehensive datasets for global weather analysis, known as the ERA5 dataset. However, the spatial resolution of ERA5 is not high enough for urban climate

Exploring Adjustments to Curve Number Based on Antecedent Rainfall in Earthscience and Urban Climate

Introduction to Curve Number Adjustments Based on Antecedent Rainfall Rainfall is a critical component of earth science and urban climate, and curve number (CN) adjustment is a method used to estimate runoff from a given area. This article provides an overview of CN adjustment and its applications in earth science and urban climate. What is
