Large numbers of inhabitants in a dense area requir e land coverage for sheltering purposes. The anthropogenic heat emission potentially reduces ven tilation of urban areas and significantly brings ch anges in air temperature. This study is aimed at finding the correlations between urban form and the alterat ion of urban microclimate in different land-uses. This stu dy has been carried out in Bandung, Indonesia, in i ts educational, high dense settlement and industrial a reas, covering around… Expand
