Short summary
Here we present a comparison between two approaches to modelling the influence of the city of Barcelona over the local temperature. We show that medium-complexity models such as UrbClim are well suited for impact and adaptation studies at a city scale without high computing requirements, but that they are sensitive to the ability of the input data to represent the local wind regime.
