The following report provides an overview of the evolution of urban climatology over the past 50 years or so, based on original research for the ESRC ‘Climate Science and Urban Design' project at the University of Manchester. We list the main individuals and their publications; summarize the main events in the field and their consequences; describe the main organizations of relevance to the field; and discuss the main reviews and bibliographies that were published since 1938. This material is available from a variety of sources, but was scattered among web resources, archival material, and information gathered from interviews with major figures of the discipline. Our work was to bring all this data together in a convenient format which we hope may serve as a reference for future work, especially on the links between urban climatology and planning.
