Urban heat islands (UHIs) reflect the localized impact of human activities on thermal fields. In this study, we assessed the surface UHI and its relationship with types of land, meteorological conditions, anthropogenic heat sources and urban areas in the Yangtze River Delta Urban Agglomeration (YRDUA) with the aid of remote sensing data, statistical data and meteorological data. The results showed that the UHI intensity in YRDUA was the strongest (0.84°C) in summer, followed by 0.81°C in autumn… Expand

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