Abstract

[automatically translated] The phenomenon known as the "urban heat island" (Urban Heat Island, UHI), which mainly concerns the most industrialized countries consists in increasing the air temperature in residential areas of urbanization. The verification of such a phenomenon was performed in Sicily by establishing a comparison between the maximum temperatures, and the minimum thermal excursions of pairs of measurement stations, respectively located inside and outside of some minor urban centers in 2002-2005. The analysis was developed in the annual and semi-annual scale (typically by separating the dry season, from April to September, from the wet), so as to detect at what times of the year dell'UHI effect is present and to what extent .
