Urbanization and its environmental effects in Shanghai , China

  title={Urbanization and its environmental effects in Shanghai , China},
  author={Linli Cui and Jun Shi},
This paper analyzes the processes and characteristics of urbanization in Shanghai, focusing on the population and land use and land cover (LULC) change, and its correlation with the evolution of climatic and ecological indicators based on the historical land use data, meteorological station data, social statistical data, normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) and land surface temperature (LST) data. The possible association between urban heat island (UHI) and urbanization indicators are… CONTINUE READING
