The replacement of the natural landscape by artificial environment has led to changes in the ecosystem and physical properties of the surface, such as heat storage capacity, and thermal conductivity properties. These changes increase the difficulty of heat transfer between urban areas and the environment. Land surface temperature (LST) images from various satellites are widely used to represent urban thermal environments, which are more convenient and intuitive way. LST maps provide full spatial coverage, which distinguishes them from air temperature data obtained from meteorological stations.
The study of LST according to the Landsat 8 data of Krasnoyarsk city over the past 10 years allowed the authors to talk about the observation of constant seasonal urban heat islands (UHI). For a more detailed consideration of the urban environment, this study further considers urban landscapes, thus the idea of local climate zone (LCZ) is introduced to study these diverse impacts in addition to the traditional map of LST. And analysis of the interaction of UHI and LCZ.
