Urban Thermal Environment Change Due to Land Development in Taipei City
Urban thermal environments were complex systems, and the formations were influenced by many factors. Nevertheless, when analyze development-related thermal environment changes that compare surface temperatures of thermal environment before and after land development. Take Xinyi Planned District, Taipei, Taiwan for example, we analyzed the data of remote thermal sensor from the satellite images, to calculate the difference of surface temperatures between the undeveloped status in 1990 and developed status in 2009. It showed urban temperature would increase 0.08∼2.39 °C due to anthropogenic heat emission.
