The measurement and prediction of ambient environmental conditions in urban areas

  • R.L. Pocock

Student thesis: Doctoral ThesisDoctor of Philosophy


The thesis reports the development of a simple, readily applied method for mapping ambient environmental conditions in urban areas. The mapping method is based upon predictive rather than purely descriptive techniques. The use of a predictive approach involves an extension of knowledge on the causes of spatia1 environmental variations; theory concerning environmental measurement and prediction is also advanced where this facilitates the development of the mapping methodology.
