Abstract


Remote sensing is an indispensable tool in the identification of heat islands in cities, it provides qualitative temperature of the place. Thus, the objective of this study was to estimate and analyze the soil surface temperature for the city of Recife, highlighting the neighborhoods of Good Voyage and Lowland, through satellite image LANDSAT 5-TM, to contribute to the identification of heat islands in urban centers from remote sensing techniques from the model SEBAL - Surface Energy Balance for Land Algotithm developed Bastiaanssen Win in 1998. The results showed that the use of remote sensing for estimating soil temperature appeared as an indispensable tool for identification and interpretation of heat islands in the city of Recife, where heat islands were diagnosed in some neighborhoods of Recife, with emphasis Good for travel that had temperatures up to 35oC. With this study, managers can use the tool to identify heat islands, and able to perform better planning, aiming thermal comfort and consequently improve the quality of life in urban centers.
