The first Russian system for predicting heat risks for urban residents. Our experimental technology, based on modeling the thermal balance of the human body in various meteorological situations, allows us to identify “heat waves” and indicate the most dangerous periods.
According to international practice, the most reliable indicator for assessing human thermal comfort is Physiologically Equivalent Temperature (PET). PET is an indicator of how the weather or thermal stress affect the human body.
We calculate daily heat stress statistics for the past day and assess the most likely heat situation for the next day. The global forecast of the GFS model provides sufficient accuracy for calculating heat stress characteristics for the human body.
