Salleh, Siti Aekbal (2015) Quantification of land surface albedo impacts in a tropical urban environment / Siti Aekbal Salleh. In: The Doctoral Research Abstracts. IPSis Biannual Publication, 7 (7). Institute of Graduate Studies, UiTM, Shah Alam.


The emergence of various climate campaigns and the establishment of numerous climate variables have been the backbone of this research framework. One of the Essential Climate Variables (ECV) called albedo was reported to be insufficiently recorded and documented in terms of its spatial scale and temporal resolution. Thus, the intensity of this variable towards the simulation of climate change effects needs to be quantified. This research aims to investigate and examine albedo pattern changes as a physical parameter to urban climate change effects generated through remote sensing and discover the functional relation with respect to the urban heat island (UHI) phenomenon. Therefore, the objectives are, to characterise the albedo pattern changes and their relationship with other biophysical, land cover and air quality parameters and their effects upon urban surface temperature; to explore and formulate a model and factorise the albedo of urban features based on selected variables (continuous air quality monitoring station (CAQMs) data and remote sensing biophysical parameters); to modify localised albedo for weather research forecasting (WRF) the Advance Research WRF (WRF-ARW) configuration; and to synthesize the impacts of localised land surface albedo towards urban heat island phenomenon. This research adopted a hybrid scientific approach combining inductive and deductive logic methodologies…
