A review of scaling theory for hardware models and application to an urban dew model

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This paper reviews scaling theory for hardware models for physical geographers, especially those interested in micro- and urban climates, and out-of-doors models. Criteria addressed dealt with physical domains (i.e., space, time, and temperature fields), physical processes such as radiation, conduction and convection, and discrete enclosures such as buildings. A case study from the field of urban climatology is presented : the out-of-doors scale model constructed by the A. to study urban dew
