Heat stress (Overlay)
We are working on a new Heat Stress Overlay module, which will be in accordance with the new Dutch DPRA standards. This module is still under construction, as is the documentation, however a Beta version of the module is available on the Preview server for our partners.
In order to configure a Heat Stress Overlay, a module has to be selected. The module can be configured by opening the Heat Overlay Wizard.
The selectable modules are:
- DPRA Heat stress module. This module is more detailed and based on the new Dutch DPRA standards. It can generate multiple Heat Overlay result types as child overlays;
- Unesco Heat stress module. This module generates a simple heat stress overlay which visualizes the Relative Physiological equivalent temperature result type. It uses a different (and smaller) set of formula's to calculate Heat differences. It does not calculate the expected Physiological Equivalent Temperature.
- The Heat Stress overlay present in the Climategame uses the UNESCO Heat stress model.
