Özet

Bioclimatic comfort is the climate conditions in which individuals feel them healthy and dynamic. In generating these environments different climatic parameters play a role and their roles are important in landscape design. As the climatic components that constitude comfort could be the main parameters heat, relative humidity, wind alongside with radiation and noise it could also be other forces. In this study bioclimatic comfort state of the shore area of Eski Kordon, a busy area which is located in Canakkale, was determined in terms of climatic data. In the study, data were obtained in the actual place by using measurement tools such as Termohygrometer, Microwave Radiometer, Digital Sound Level Meter, Luxmeter and Anemometer. As a result of these measurements, approximate heat, relative humidity and wind rate, light alongside with radiation and noise rate have been interrelated with structural and vegetative equipment. Bioclimatic comfort standard of the areas where there were a flowing vehicle and pedestrian traffic was also investigated by analysing relevant data. As the result of this study it was determined that the rates of vehicle and pedestrian roads do not meet with the required comfort standards, whereas some of the green areas provide these standards at some particular spots.
