    Abstract: NDVI is often used to investigate how vegetation contributes to the surface urban heat islands (SUHI) effect. Generally, NDVIs obtained for partially vegetated or built-up areas have been found to be less than 0.4. However, anomalous NDVIs that are inconsistent with established concepts and relationships are frequently obtained for non-vegetated ur... Show More
