Urban Heat Island associated with Land Use/Land Cover and climate variations in Melbourne, Australia

Highlights When the urban and built-up area increased by +14.93 % in 2014, UHI intensity (ΔT) increased by ∼1.20 ±0.20 °C. The LCI of urban and built-up area was higher in 2014 compared to 2001. UHI altered the surface energy balance resulted in higher Qh and lower Qle. UHI was driven by convection reduction, surface evaporative cooling, and heat storage …
