Cities in Australia are experiencing unprecedented levels of urban overheating with a significant impact on the country’s socio-economic environment. The average urban heat island (UHI) intensity ranges from 1.0°C to 13.0°C. The magnitude of the urban overheating phenomenon in Australia is determined by a combination of the urban heat island effect and the dualistic atmospheric circulation systems of cool sea breeze and hot desert winds. The strong relation between multiple characteristics contributes to dramatic fluctuations and high spatiotemporal variabilities in urban overheating, especially in coastal cities. For example, despite being located close by the ocean, Sydney's average urban heat island intensity is much higher than other Australian cities. Spatially, the absolute intensity of urban overheating increases with increasing distance from the coastline. View this paper.
