Dr. Alvin C. G. Varquez is an expert in global urban climate studies in Tokyo Institute of Technology. His main works include regional-to-global urban climate & climate change investigations, urban hydro-meteorology, and GIS databse constructions. Specific topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Climate modeling of multiple cities at a global scale
  • Modeling or investigating dynamics of urban or population growth in high-spatial and annual scales
  • Urban heat island investigations (including observations) at a global scale
  • Investigating the potential of remote sensing technologies (e.g. satellite images, machine learning technology) to urban database construction, and development of models automating processes.
  • Global climate modeling to investigate urban and global climate interactions
