4.2.1. SUEWS_AnthropogenicHeat.txt

SUEWS_AnthropogenicHeatFlux.txt provides the parameters needed to model the anthropogenic heat flux using either the method of Järvi et al. (2011) based on heating and cooling degree days (EmissionsMethod = 2 in 4.1 RunControl.nml) or the method of Loridan et al. (2011) based on air temperature (EmissionsMethod = 1 in RunControl.nml). The sub-daily variation in anthropogenic heat flux is modelled according to the daily cycles specified in SUEWS_Profiles.txt. Alternatively, if available, the anthropogenic heat flux can be provided in the met forcing file (and set EmissionsMethod = 0 in RunControl.nml), in which case all columns here except Code and BaseTHDD should be set to ’-999’.
