The Cooling Effect of Urban Green Spaces in Metacities: A Case Study of Beijing, China's Capital

The findings may provide solutions for the mitigation of both the urban heat island and global climate warming of the UGS area customized cooling service.

Assessment of green space cooling effects in dense urban landscape: a case study of Delhi, India

Most noticeable and direct impacts of urbanization on the environment is the changes in daily and seasonal thermal variable and increase the hydraulic stress. Both are cumulatively formed the urban

Studying the Association between Green Space Characteristics and Land Surface Temperature for Sustainable Urban Environments: An Analysis of Beijing and Islamabad

The results indicate that both vegetation composition and configuration influence LST distributions; however, vegetation composition appeared to have a slightly greater effect.

Green Space Cooling Effect and Contribution to Mitigate Heat Island Effect of Surrounding Communities in Beijing Metropolitan Area

With the rapid process of urbanization and global warming, many metropolises are vulnerable to high temperatures in summer, threatening the health of residents. However, green spaces can generate a

Effects of Green Space Patterns on Urban Thermal Environment at Multiple Spatial–Temporal Scales

Land use/land cover (LULC) pattern change due to human activity is one of the key components of regional and global climate change drivers. Urban green space plays a critical role in regulating urban

Land Cover Influences on LST in Two Proposed Smart Cities of India: Comparative Analysis Using Spectral Indices

Elucidating the impact of Land Surface Temperature (LST) is an important aspect of urban studies. The impact of urbanization on LST has been widely studied to monitor the Urban Heat Island (UHI)

Exploring Adaptive UHI Mitigation Solutions by Spatial Heterogeneity of Land Surface Temperature and Its Relationship to Urban Morphology in Historical Downtown Blocks, Beijing

: Heat stress brought on by the intensification of urban heat island (UHI) has caused many negative effects on human beings, which were found to be more severe in highly urbanized old towns. With the

Satellite Remote Sensing of Surface Urban Heat Islands: Progress, Challenges, and Perspectives

An exponentially increasing trend of SUHI research since 2005, with clear preferences for geographic areas, time of day, seasons, research foci, and platforms/sensors is found, and key potential directions and opportunities for future efforts are proposed.



Spatial pattern of greenspace affects land surface temperature: evidence from the heavily urbanized Beijing metropolitan area, China

The urban heat island describes the phenomenon that air/surface temperatures are higher in urban areas compared to their surrounding rural areas. Numerous studies have shown that increased percent

Quantitative evaluation of urban park cool island factors in mountain city

Evaluating how park characteristics affect the formation of a park cool island (PCI) is the premise of guiding green parks planning in mountain cities. The diurnal variation of PCI intensity was
