The LIFE UrbanProof environmental monitoring platform

Peristeri Greece,
Lakatamia – Strovolos Cyprus,
Reggio Emilia Italy

In the framework of the LIFE UrbanProof project (, a set of sensors has been installed at selected locations of the UrbanProof municipalities where adaptation measures were implemented. The sensors are aimed at monitoring several critical meteorological and hydrological indicators for assessing heat and water related impacts, validating the effect of adaptation measures in decreasing impacts, as well as, at informing citizens.

The network of sensors includes sensors for measuring ambient temperature, precipitation, relative humidity and water infiltration. The information from sensors is further processed to produce useful impact indicators, such as the thermal discomfort index (HUMIDEX) and the daily infiltrated water.

The UrbanProof platform provides access to both real-time information as well as to historical timeseries of the monitored parameters.
