Quantifying the Relationship Between Aerosol Concentrations and Land Surface Temperature in Quanzhou, China: A Remote Sensing Study

Urban heat islands (UHIs) are a well-documented phenomenon where urban areas experience higher temperatures than their rural surroundings due to human activities and alterations in land surfaces. Aerosols, fine particulate matter suspended in the atmosphere, have complex interactions with climate and air quality. This study focuses on Quanzhou, China, a rapidly urbanizing region with significant industrial activity, to explore the correlation between aerosol concentrations and UHIs. By utilizing remote sensing data from Landsat for landsurface temperatures and TROPOMI for aerosol measurements, we aim to provide insights into the spatial patterns and interactions of these phenomena.
