Abstract
The Land Surface Temperature (LST) plays a key role in the generation of the Urban Heat Island (UHI), representing a determining factor of the radiation of the surface and the exchange of energy and control the distribution of heat between the surface and the atmosphere. The composition of the land covers is one of the main factors that influence the LST. The literature have highlighted that the different types of land cover materials, their albedo and roughness, degree of impervious as well as ...
