Split Metropolitan area surface temperature assessment with remote sensing method

Tea Duplančić Leder, Nenad Leder, Željko Hećimović

Abstract

Land surface temperature (LST) is a very important parameter for a wide variety of Earth processes. The satellite thermal data enable us to obtain information on land surface temperature. The Landsat Mission is the most important and longest satellite mission with the thermal band capability and a sufficient spatial resolution. Landsat thermal channels have been used in this research to determine the LST within the metropolitan area of Split. The results point to the phenomenon of urban heat islands (UHI), as the simultaneous effect of intensive urbanization in the city of Split metropolitan area, and the observed climate changes.

Keywords
land surface temperature, urban heat islands, remote sensing, Landsat Mission
