This study attempted to assess a bioclimate index and the occurrence of an urban heat island in the city of Campina Grande, northeastern Brazil, using data taken from mobile measurements and Automatic Weather Stations (AWS). The climate data were obtained during two representative months, one for the dry season (November 2005) and one for the rainy season (June 2006) at seven points in an urban area. Ten-minute air temperatures recorded by an AWS installed in urban areas were compared to those…

Mobile transect for identification of intra-urban heat islands in Uberlandia, Brazil
The “heat island” phenomenon is one of many serious problems caused by rapid urban growth. This study therefore sought to characterize and quantify heat islands in Uberlandia, to evaluate the
Thermal comfort conditions at microclimate scale and surface urban heat island in a tropical city: A study on João Pessoa city, Brazil
Surface urban heat islands (SUHIs) are one of the most studied phenomena in urban climates because they generate problems for the well-being of the urban population. This study analyzed the thermal
Urban heat island: a case study in the Campus IV UFPB
A B S T R A C T In the intra - urban space of the Campus IV of the Federal University of Paraiba (UFPB), we found areas with concrete lining and ceramic, adjoining a remnant of Atlantic Forest, which
Characterizing the Hourly Variation of Urban Heat Islands in a Snowy Climate City during Summer
Temporal variation of urban heat island (UHI) intensity is one of the most important themes in UHI studies. However, fine-scale temporal variability of UHI with explicit spatial information is sparse
