The urban heat island phenomenon was proven to have negative economic and health consequences on urban populations and is hence one of the most important climatic issues to be dealt with in the 21st century. This paper aims at providing a microclimatic analysis of different courtyards in Vienna. The goal of this research is to analyze the thermal behavior of different courtyards and compare them to adjacent street canyons in terms of temperature, humidity, wind speed and CO2. Data was simultaneously recorded by mobile weather stations.
