They are currently studying and evaluating the land surface temperature (LST) of Quezon City, Baguio City, Cebu and Mandaue City, Iloilo City, Zamboanga City, and Davao City using satellite imageries in order to assess the effect of urban heat islands.
Then start looking at other strategies you can implement, especially the ones that will yield additional dividends beyond just mitigating the urban heat island effect.
Urban heat islands occur when city temperatures are higher than those of surrounding rural areas due to physical differences in the environment.
Comparison of impervious surface area and normalized difference vegetation index as indicators of surface urban heat island effects in Landsat imagery, Remote Sensing of Environment 106(3): 375-386.
Urbanization and urban heat island (UHI) are also interlinked with each other because UHI is take place where urbanization is high where cluster of people live, population is high, building structure, pollution, no open spaces and green areas vegetation is low etc.
The new report notes that Urban Heat Islands disproportionately impact environmental justice communities, which suffer the cumulative impacts of environmental burdens.
The main objective of this study is to evaluate the acid corrosion process of concrete in the superficial soil layers of urban area, which have higher ground temperature owing to the urban heat island effect.
An urban heat island (UHI) effect is described as an urban or metropolitan area that is significantly warmer than its surrounding rural areas due to human activities.
The "urban heat island" effect is caused by replacing plants and other natural features with heat-trapping concrete and asphalt.
The most prominent feature of urban climate is the effect of the urban heat island. The urban heat island (UHI) is a phenomenon in which the air temperature in densely populated cities is higher than rural areas, this is, currently, the main character of the urban climate (Lopes, Alves, Alcoforado, & Machete, 2013; Lu, Li, Yang, Zhang, & Jin, 2012; Parlow et al., 2014).
Urban heat island (UHI) effect refers to the phenomenon by which urban areas' temperatures become higher than those of the surrounding rural areas, usually as a result of rapid urbanization [1-3].
In public buildings, especially located in compact urban areas, a growing issue occurs when additional energy is used for cooling because this usage adds to the problem of urban heat island effect.
