Abstract


The thermal variations always have been at the center of discussions in the academy. Some arguments to explain temperature changes as a natural factor or responsibility of human actions has generated great debates and researches that aim to corroborate the defense of each perspective. With technological innovations and the creation of its countless techniques that make possible climate studies currently most accurate and comprehensive, research has become more refined and useful in order to contribute scientifically to actions that benefit the beings dependent on weather conditions for stable their survival. In this perspective, the Remote Sensing contributes essential to support environmental research. The present study aimed to analyze temporally punctual and measured temperatures in the mid of 1989 and 2007 relating to thermal variations occurring with urban growth, the occurrence of El Niño and La Niña and record rainfall in the urban area Campina Grande-PB. The use of satellite images to understand the thermal dynamics of the study area proved to be very useful tool, however, however, emphasizes the need to relate other climatic factors such as extreme events and the incidence observed in the rainfall collection dates image.
