  title={Changes in Land Cover and Use Affect the Local and Regional Climate in Piracicaba , Brazil},
  author={Priscila Pereira-Coltri and Nelson de Jesus Ferreira and Saulo Ribeiro de Freitas and Valdemar Antonio Demetrio},
Land use and changes in land cover play an important role in local and regional climatic conditions, especially in tropical regions. Piracicaba, a city in southeastern Brazil, has an economy that is based primarily on sugar cane cultivation. The seasonality of this crop means that there are marked annual fluctuations in land use and cover in this municipality. In this work, we investigated the seasonal variation in urban heat-islands and local climatic variations by using remote sensing data… CONTINUE READING
