An article on “Prioritizing environmental determinants of urban heat islands: A machine learning study for major cities in China” was published on International Journal of Applied Earth Observation and Geoinformation on

Highlights of the article:

  • We quantify the attribution of surface heat island using random forest.

  • NDVI is the most prominent determinant for annual mean heat islands.

  • We recommend locality-based and coordinated heat mitigation strategies.

The study was a collaboration with Dr. Zhi-Hua Wang’s research group in  Arizona State University.

More details of the article can be found from the journal website.
