Abstract

The use of airborne infrared scanner images indicates a heat island core over Johannesburg with one nocturnal center, and a strong temperature gradient at about 600-700 m from the city center. The disjunction between the location of the heat island core and highest ground elevation of the central business district offers additional evidence for the relevance of the centrality factor as a distinct parameter in the description of heat island core structure and magnitude.
