In this paper we propose a case study of urban heat island applied to Palermo. The urbanheat island (UHI) is the most studied of the climate effects of settlements. The UHI refers to thegenerally warm urban temperatures compared to those over surrounding, non-urban, areas. The aim ofthis paper is to find a connection among the average rise in temperature and the modification ofalbedo.
