07feb3:00 pm4:00 pmExamining our Changing Urban Environment: from Spatial Pattern to Sustainable Development

Event Details

We believe that building sustainable cities is a must to achieve a sustainable world. While the relationship between fractional cover of anthropogenic and vegetation features and the urban warming or heat island has been well examined, the effect of spatial pattern (e.g., clustered, dispersed, random) of these features on air and land surface temperatures (LST) are not well understood. This presentation demonstrates if and how spatial configuration of urban landscapes influence surface and air temperatures in urban areas. It will also cover if and how spatial pattern approaches can be used to measure traditional landscape matrices and examine urban dynamics.
