Abstract

An important hypothesis, and the major emphasis of this paper, is that the immediate surface temperature (Ts) at a site is directly correlated with the overlying air temperature (Ta), thus proving to be statistically significant in predicting Ta. However, it is also hypothesized that, for the more complex surfaces, microadvection from adjacent land uses reduces the significance of relationships between Ts and Ta. Microadvection is expressed as a diurnally varying phenomenon, related to atmospheric mixing and systematic variations in wind velocity at a site
