Abstract

Investigations concentrated on the influence of the urban green areas on the local climate. Nocturnal mobile measurements were carried out under windless and light wind conditions, over the thermally polluted western part of Athens, Greece. For this purpose three green areas with different size and characteristics were selected. The collected data were analysed using geographical information system software. The spatial patterns of air temperature and the calculation of Discomfort Index indicated a beneficial influence of green areas and non built-up areas.
