urban temperature focusing on heat island


Dear Office,

If I would like to focus on heat island, which temperature parameter should be chosen? T2 or TSK?

Best wishes,
Urban heat island effect can be directly demonstrated by surface air temperature (T2) and skin temmpeertaure (TSK). Changes in temperature may induce local circulation, for example larger than normal ascending motions above urban area and low-level convergence, etc. Please refer to the literature for more information.
