Urban heatwave is increasingly severe as the global warming advances. Even worse, in Tokyo, an increasing proportion of residences are vulnerable against heats under the aging society. Today, heatwave monitoring is an emergent task toward climate adaptive urban development. Our final goal is developing a system to monitor real-time and micro-scale heatwave risk in Tokyo. To achieve it, we performed the following observation experiments: airborne monitoring, monitoring from the Tokyo Sky Tree, and micro-scale monitoring censoring inside and outside comforts. A method to combine these multi-scale information is developed to estimate micro-scale spatiotemporal behavior on heatwave risks. Based on the result, it is discussed how we can achieve the real-time and micro-scale heatwave monitoring, and make Tokyo more risk adaptive.
