The Impact of the Land Cover Dynamics on Surface Urban Heat Island Variations in Semi-Arid Cities: A Case Study in Ahmedabad City, India, Using Multi-Sensor/Source Data

Despite the city growth across the years, the urban area does not generally reveal a temporal increase of the magnitude of the heat island but an enlargement of its spatial footprint, resulting in a mean negative SUHI, typical of arid cities.

Spatiotemporal influences of land use/cover changes on the heat island effect in rapid urbanization area

Rapid urban sprawl and growth led to substantial urban thermal environment changes and influenced the local climate, environment, and quality of life of residents. Taking the Chang-Zhu-Tan urban

Impact of Biophysical Mechanisms on Urban Heat Island Associated with Climate Variation and Urban Morphology

The results suggest the need to consider climate variation beyond local site characteristics when mitigating heat stress and making decisions regarding urban development.

Analysis of the Daytime Urban Heat Island Mechanism in East China

Urban heat islands (UHIs) are one of the most typical changes to surface climate induced by human activities, which manifest as higher temperatures in urban areas than in their surroundings. In this

Urbanization Effects on Vegetation and Surface Urban Heat Islands in China's Yangtze River Basin

MODIS land surface temperature data and enhanced vegetation index (EVI) data were used to analyze the temporal trends of UEs on vegetation and surface urban heat islands (SUHIs) at 10 big cities in Yangtze River Basin, China during 2001–2016, and indicated that the annual and summer daytime SUHII were significantly negatively correlated with ∆EVI in most cities.



Assessing the Impact of Land Use/Land Cover on Urban Heat Island Pattern in Nanjing City, China

Land use/land cover (LULC) change with urbanization affects urban heat island (UHI). We selected the Landsat Enhanced Thematic Mapper images for year 2005 to retrieve land surface temperature (LST)

Temporal and spatial characteristics of the urban heat island during rapid urbanization in Shanghai, China

Analysis of the association of UHI and urbanization indicated that the UHI increased with the expansion of population and rapid increase of gross domestic product and green land had a positive effect on mitigation of heat island based on an inversed U-shaped curve with UHI intensity.

Surface urban heat island across 419 global big cities.

The results emphasize the key role of vegetation feedbacks in attenuating SUHII of big cities during the day, in particular during the growing season, further highlighting that increasing urban vegetation cover could be one effective way to mitigate the urban heat island effect.

Urban heat island effect across biomes in the continental USA

It is found that the ecological context and settlement size significantly influence the amplitude of summer daytime UHI and in desert environments, the LST's response to ISA presents an uncharacteristic “U-shaped” horizontal gradient and points to a possible heat sink effect.

Satellite-Observed Urbanization Characters in Shanghai, China: Aerosols, Urban Heat Island Effect, and Land-Atmosphere Interactions

Satellite observed aerosol, skin temperature, land cover, albedo, cloud fraction and water vapor measurements reveal how the city of Shanghai affects land surface and atmosphere conditions, proving that Shanghai significantly modifies local and regional land surface physical properties as well as physical processes, which lead to the urban heat island effect (UHI).
