To examines the processes involved in the process of urbanization as it affects local climcate and the implication that such changes have for human bioclimate and the hazards posed to the population that can arise from such changes. Research in progress seeks to establish the links between urbanization and local climcate through analysis of longterm historical data and the more recent changes that have taken place as a consequence of the rapid urbanization of the New Territories; and to further our understanding of the role of the bioclimcatic controls and processes which affect factors such as thermal stress amd air quality which are of serious concern to the population of Hong Kong and their well-being.
