Site Climatic Features Survey of Urban Parks in the City of Isfahan

Authors(1) :-Mohammad Mehdi Sadeghian

The term climate is a little complex that affected the planning and designing urban parks. It refers to the long-standing weather conditions or weather situation in a certain district. Weather and climate features of the site, such as average maximum and minimum temperature, relative humidity, precipitation, Sunshine hours, clouds, wind speed and direction, Dew point, snow were investigate in urban parks of Isfahan. This information will also become more important for planning and designing the parks. This paper has been conducted on the basis of synoptic station raw information of Isfahan. We discuss the data of these features that affect the urban parks and green space of the city of Isfahan.
