理大研究發現綠化及冷屋頂可大幅節能

土地及空間研究院副院長兼地理信息學和人工智能講座教授翁齊浩教授及其團隊,研究綠化及冷屋頂在降低建築能源消耗方面的節能潛力。研究已發表於《npj Urban Sustainability》期刊。   該研究審視了開羅、香港、首爾、倫敦、洛杉磯和聖保羅等六個全球城市在當前和未來氣候變化狀況下的綠色及冷屋頂策略。結果顯示,在未來的氣候條件下,在城市層面實施這些策略可每年節省高達 65.51%能源消耗,以及減少71.72%的供暖、通風及空調能源消耗。此項研究提供了有用參考,有助指引全球不同氣候區實施相關策略,按城市環境狀況而選擇和設計適切的屋頂方案。   閱讀全文:https://www.nature.com/articles/s42949-024-00159-8(只有英文)

20240326Prof Qihao WENG

土地及空間研究院副院長榮獲著名的 2024 年 AAG Wilbanks 地理轉型研究獎和 2024 年 RSSG 終身成就榮譽獎 (只有英文版本)

The Associate Director of RILS, Prof. Qihao WENG, has been honoured with the 2024 AAG Wilbanks Prize for Transformational Research in Geography on 6 March 2024. This prestigious award is presented by the American Association of Geographers (AAG), an organisation that brings together more than ten thousand members of the global geographic community. The Wilbanks Prize is awarded to geographers who have made groundbreaking contributions in the fields of Geography or GIScience, or to Science and Society more broadly.   Equally important, Remote Sensing Specialty Group (RSSG) of AAG, which is dedicated to promoting the understanding of remote sensing science, fosters dialogue and interaction among geographers in the application of remote sensing technology in various domains, including research, teaching, public service, and private enterprise, also announces Prof. WENG as the esteemed recipient of the RSSG’s Lifetime Achievement Honor Award for the year 2024, which is a testament to Prof. WENG's unparalleled contributions to the discipline of remote sensing, marked by a distinguished career encompassing ground-breaking research, dedicated education, and impactful service engagement.   Prof. Qihao WENG, a Foreign Member of The Academy of Europe (Academia Europaea), and a Fellow of IEEE, AAAS, ASPRS and AAIA, is currently a Chair Professor at the The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU), Associate Director of RILS, and a Global STEM Scholar. Prof. WENG worked as Director of the Center for Urban and Environmental Change and a Professor of Geography at Indiana State University, 2001-2021, and was a Senior Fellow at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration from 2008 to 2009. Additionally, Professor Weng is the Lead of GEO Global Urban Observation and Information Initiative, 2012-2022, and is an Editor-in-Chief of the ISPRS Journal of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing.   Prof. WENG has defined urban remote sensing as a new field and has transformed urban environmental research with theoretical and technical advances, including novel algorithms and innovative methods for sub-pixel-scale analysis and time series imagery. His research has significantly advanced our theoretical understanding and empirical knowledge of urban heat islands, urban sprawl, urbanization effects, and urban environmental sustainability. By establishing relationships among satellite thermal infrared imagery, land surface temperature, and air temperature, his research connects remotely sensed data to urban spatial patterns, radiation budgets, and climate change. His 2004 methodology for estimating land-surface temperature from satellite-derived attributes of vegetation, developed with Lu and Schubring, has had far-reaching impacts in a range of fields, including urban geography, landscape ecology, urban planning, urban meteorology, and climatology.   The AAG will celebrate the 2024 Awards and Honors at an awards celebration during the 2024 AAG Annual Meeting in Honolulu, Hawaii, in April 2024.

2024 Atmospheric and Coastal Observations for Weather Servicing (2024 ACOWS) was successfully held (只有英文版本)

Department of Land Surveying and Geo-Informatics (LSGI) and the Research Institute for Land and Space (RILS) co-organized an academic workshop titled “2024 Atmospheric and Coastal Observations for Weather Servicing (2024 ACOWS)”. This workshop was led by Prof. George LIU of LSGI and held at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University on Saturday 3 February 2024. Twelve scientists from nine different universities or agencies, including The University of Hong Kong, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, City University of Hong Kong, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Sun Yat-Sen University, Shenzhen Institute of Meteorological Innovation, The University of Nottingham Ningbo (China), and Hong Kong observatory were invited to give presentations and exchange their research insights on weather/climate changes over the coastal areas.   Hong Kong, as a well-known coastal city, frequently suffers from various weather and climate disasters, such as typhoon. In the context of global warming, the extreme weather activities are expected to occur with an increasing frequency. This workshop has provided a valuable opportunity for the experts to share and discuss their knowledges with each other from a wide range of research aspects, and then to facilitate the multi-discipline collaboration in costal weather monitoring and forecasting.
