Figure Percentage of green and blue urban areas — share of cities per class per country
The diagram shows the proportion of cities per country that falls in a particular class regarding the share of green and blue urban areas.

Figure Heat waves — both a low share of green and blue urban areas and high population densities can contribute to the urban heat island effect in cities
The cities are displayed as dots of different colours and sizes. The colours represent the share of green and blue urban areas inside the Urban Morphological Zone of the city, the size of the dots reflects the population density within the core cities’ UMZ. The background map is the result of climatic modelling and represents the number of combined tropical nights (T>20°C) and hot days (T>35°C) for the period 2071 to 2100.

Data AirBase - The European air quality database
AirBase is the air quality information system maintained by the EEA through the European topic centre on Air and Climate Change. It contains air quality data delivered annually under 97/101/EC Council Decision establishing a reciprocal exchange of information and data from networks and individual stations measuring ambient air pollution within the Member States (EoI Decision).

Figure NO2 (top) and PM10 (bottom) concentration trends at urban background (left) and traffic (right) locations
Top: NO2 concentration in selected cities from 2002 to 2009. Bottom: PM10 concentrations in selected cities from 1999 to 2009. Values are presented for single monitoring stations that provide reliable time series data for the last years. Selected cities have at least one background and one traffic station that provide such reliability and can therefore be compared for analysis. Therefore, this figure does not represent air quality results citywide, but rather serves as a snapshot of the different trends in background and traffic stations wherever comparable long-term time-series data are available. Because the different lines represent individual measurement points, there can be a significant effect from local changes in traffic flows. According to sources, this is part of the background for the large change in the NO2 levels in London.

Article D source code Urban world
Did you know? A city affects a large area outside its own boundaries. For example, London alone is thought to need an area of almost 300 times its geographical size to satisfy its demands and to dispose of its waste and emissions. (SOER 2010)
