    Water sensitive urban design (WSUD) and climate sensitive urban design can reduce urban temperatures and create comfortable healthy environments. To implement WSUD features that are relevant to human thermal comfort, field studies identifying thermally comfortable temperature ranges should be undertaken. WSUD features best suited to achieving comfortable environments in different locations can be determined. This study identified thermally comfortable temperatures in outdoor settings in Mawson Lakes a suburb of Adelaide and Melbourne.
