New Universal Thermal Climate Index



A symposium on the findings and accomplishments of EU COST ACTION 730, on the Universal Thermal Climate Index (UTCI), was held 15-16 April 2009  at WMO headquarters. The symposium, co-sponsored by COST and WMO, brought together an international group of scientists that have been developing UTCI to review progress, identify remaining challenges and look forward to the further development of the concept.


This result will be a new tool with universal application potential to assist countries to provide improved information to their public and key decision-makers on the thermal environment and the implications of dangerous thermal conditions. This activity is timely and should contribute greatly to individual, corporate and institutional capability to better adapt to climate variability and change.
