Anthropogenic heat is the heat flux generated by human activities and is a major contributor to the formation of an urban heat island. In a city such as Hong Kong, obtaining pure pixels from medium- or coarse-resolution remote sensing images is challenging. Considering the completely different thermal properties of vegetation and impervious surfaces, this(More)
BACKGROUND Dust events have long been recognized to be associated with a higher mortality risk. However, no study has investigated how prolonged dust events affect the spatial variability of mortality across districts in a downwind city. METHODS In this study, we applied a spatial regression approach to estimate the district-level mortality during two(More)
Two different land surface temperatures (with considering geometry effect and without considering geometry effect) were derived to estimate sensible heat flux over urban areas using remotely sensed land surface temperature. Results showed that the surface temperatures with considering geometry effect could bring up to 18.0% difference in the estimated(More)
Haze is an extreme weather event that can severely increase air pollution exposure, resulting in higher burdens on human health. Few studies have explored the health effects of haze, and none have investigated the spatiotemporal interaction between temperature, air quality and urban environment that may exacerbate the adverse health effects of haze. We(More)
