Summary The effects of urbanization on the Athens National Observatory (NOA) long records are investigated, in the present study, examining the mean monthly maximum and minimum air temperature for the period 1925–1996, for NOA and the corresponding time series for Aliartos (ALI), a rural station located 70 km NW of Athens. The existing small urbanization effect in NOA before the second world war period increased after the war and up to about 1990, when the effect became stationary. The… 
The Contribution of Urban Effect to the Warming Trends of Air Temperature in Athens
Mediterranean is identified as one of the most vulnerable areas in the context of future climate projections and global warming. Greece in particular, has experienced significant warming over the
Climatic effects of urbanization in Istanbul : a statistical and modeling analysis
Statistical and numerical modeling tools were used to investigate the climatic effects of urbanization in Istanbul, the largest city in Turkey. Mann–Kendall trend test was applied to minimum
GREATER TORONTO AREA URBAN HEAT ISLAND: ANALYSIS OF TEMPERATURE AND EXTREMES
This study analyzes the trends in temperature, and their extremes, in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) in the context of urban heat island. The trends in annual and seasonal temperature changes were
Investigating urban heat island intensity in Istanbul
We analyzed the annual, monthly, and seasonal variations of urban heat island (UHI) intensity in Istanbul by using meteorological data measured for the period of 1960–2012 at six stations. The UHI on
Variations of the Urban Heat Island in Summer of the Recent 10 Years over Beijing and Its Environment Effects
With observed temperature data of July and August in Beijing during 1993 to 2003, the interannual variability and the environment effects of the Urban Heat Island (UHI) are studied. The results show
Trend analysis of long-term temperature time series in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA)
As the majority of the world’s population is living in urban environments, there is growing interest in studying local urban climates. In this paper, for the first time, the long-term trends (31–162

Instrumental data time series show an average global warming of approximately 0.9C over the last century. Eastern Mediterranean air temperature follows the northern hemisphere (NH) secular trend till
IS THE LAST YEARS ABRUPT WARMING IN THE NATIONAL OBSERVATORY OF ATHENS RECORDS A CLIMATE CHANGE MANIFESTATION
Instrumental data time series show an average global warming of approximately 0.9 0 C over the last century. Eastern Mediterranean air temperature follows the northern hemisphere (NH) secular trend
Significant changes in the regional climate of the Aegean during 1961–2002
Significant changes in the regional climate of coastal and island stations in and bordering the Aegean during 1961–2002 are identified. Here we start with a very large number of parameters describing
