Abstract
Urban heat island (UHI) phenomenon has been observed in many high density cities due to regional climate change while urbanization has been recognized as a major contributor to this regional climate change. The aim of this study is to evaluate the impact of land use/land cover (LULC) change on land surface temperature (LST) in the Klang Valley and Penang Island using the remote sensing technique. LULC change, Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) and LST values were derived from the Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM) and Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+) images by using ERDAS Imagine software. Correlation graph between LST and NDVI was generated to evaluate the relationship between LULC, NDVI and LST. The results showed negative relationship between NDVI and LST. The higher the NDVI, the lower is the temperature, and vice versa. The overall results showed that LULC change affects the Leaf Area Index (LAI) of an area which is indicated by NDVI, which in turn affects the land surface temperature of that particular area.
