Remote sensing of the urban heat island (UHI) effect has been conducted largely through simple correlation and regression between the UHI's spatial variations and surface characteristics. Few studies have examined the surface UHI from a temporal perspective and related it with climatic and meteorological factors. By selecting the city of Beijing, China, as the study area, the purpose of this research was to evaluate the applicability and feasibility of the support vector machine (SVM) technique… CONTINUE READING
