Abstract

Small and medium-sized towns located near the city of Debrecen in Eastern Hungary were chosen for the present study on the development of the urban heat island (UHI) and park cool island (PCI). Mobile techniques were used in order to get abundant comparable data for all settlements. Besides the UHI, the existence of a park cool island (PCI) has been proved in Debrecen. On the basis of the results, the spatial characteristics of the UHI are described in various settlements. Characteristic maximal UHI intensities have been determined for the typical built-up types of the different settlements. The impacts of urban green spaces on the temporal and spatial dynamics of the development of the UHI in Debrecen and in the different sized settlements in its neighbourhood were determined. Annual and seasonal mean maximal PCI intensities were calculated for Debrecen. The cooling effect of the park Nagyerdő was traced in its urban environment in Debrecen.
