In this paper, the AA. describe the extraction of urban thermal fringes using remote sensing data and Focal Statistical Analysis method. They use Landsat TM/ETM+ thermal images to identify the thermal fringes spatial distribution patterns between 1987 and 2001 in Tsukuba city. They analyze the changing patterns for these 14 years (thermal properties of surface materials and lack of evapotranspiration). According to this study, urban heat island (UHI) effect was reducing between 1987 and 2001 in Tsukuba City
