Study Of The Urban Heat Island Effect In Cyprus
This project aims to study the urban heat island effect in Cyprus based on both multi‐temporal satellite and meteorological data. The necessary heat waves and the analysis of the synoptic conditions favouring the development of heat waves have been studied and analyzed. The development of a Neural Network for the correlation of satellite derived land surface temperature (LST) with ground based air surface temperature is also examined. The analysis of satellite derived LST for studying the temporal evolution of LST and the deviation of LST (anomaly) from the mean values during a heat wave event has been evaluated while the calculation of the mean monthly magnitude of urban heat island (UHI) for the period 2002‐2008 and for other selected heat wave events has been also considered.
