Abstract

Based on non-radiance-calibrated DMSP/OLS nighttime light imagery from 1992 to 2003, urban land area statistical data, meteorological data and land surface temperature data retrieved by MODIS and NOAA/AVHRR data, the influence of urbanization on regional climatic trend of temperature in the Yangtze River Delta (YRD) was analysed. The results indicate that the urban expansion in the YRD from 1991 to 2005 may be regarded as a serious climate signal
