Assessment of Changes in Land Cover, Land Surface Temperature and Precipitation and Establishment of a Monitoring System

P. Limlahapun

Abstract—The urbanized have cost significant demand on the local and global natural environment. This demand rises beyond that which Earth can remain sustainability. Thus, evaluating the magnitude and pattern of land use is a need. This research investigated the relationships among land cover change, land surface temperatures, and precipitation in the Aichi Prefecture, Japan. Land cover and land surface temperatures were derived by using Landsat imagery. Then, the satellite-derived temperature algorithm was applied to land cover patterns to view the spatial and temporal changes.
Precipitation data were collected from ground-based stations. Precipitation data could be obtained at a high frequency and on a virtually near-real-time basis. A meteorological database was then constructed. The information in this database can be communicated on a web-based system and may be valuable as an early warning system for flooding.

Index Terms—Flood, land surface temperature, meteorological database.
