Glossary of "Environmental Science: Earth as a Living Planet (2nd ed.)" by Botkin & Keller (1998)

  • Urban areas are several degrees warmer than their surrounding areas. During relatively calm periods there is an upward flow of air over heavily developed areas accompanied by a downward flow over nearby greenbelts. This produces an air-temperature profile that delineates the heat island.
