  1. 1. Exploring Urban Land Cover Changes and the Effect on Nocturnal Air Temperature Dynamics in Helsingborg - A temperature modeling made with TAPM

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Amanda Bäck; [2023-10-09]
    Keywords : Nocturnal Air Temperature; Intra-Urban Heat Island; Land Cover Classification; Deep learning; The Air Pollution Model TAPM ; Land Cover Change;

    Abstract : In light of increasing global temperatures, urban areas face growing challenges related to heat stress. Alterations in land cover (LC) within cities contribute to changes in the intra-urban climate, predominantly driven by the replacement of vegetated surfaces with impermeable materials. READ MORE
