Climate protection from the air

City lets reconnaissance aircraft take off
Urban Greening Master Plan: "Thermal Flight" identifies heat islands and fresh air corridors

In the fight against climate change, the city of Oldenburg is taking a new measure: On Thursday, August 11, 2022, the reconnaissance plane of a special company circled over Oldenburg on behalf of the city. The twin-engine small aircraft measured the surface temperature from the air during two flights - each lasting about one and a half hours - at different times of the day. The findings obtained during the so-called "thermal flight" are to be incorporated into an analysis of the city's climate.
