Urban-Rural Temperature Data-relation between land-cover and the Urban Heat Island in San Juan, Puerto Rico

Charles A.S. Hall
Our objective in this study is to quantify the UHI created by the San Juan Metropolitan Area over space and time using temperature data collected by mobile and fixed-station measurements. We used the fixed-station measurements to examine the relation between average temperature at a given location and the density of vegetation located upwind. We then regressed temperatures against regional land-cover to predict future temperature with projected land-cover change. Our data show the existence of a...
