Abstract:Heat islands (HI) are a common anthropogenic phenomenon and are defined as artificial surfaces (urban areas) that have a higher average temperature than their surroundings (rural areas). The aim of this work was to determine the influence of land use on the spatial distribution and intensity (HIi ) of HI in Slovenia. The MODIS Land Surface Temperature (LST) and Corine Land Cover (CLC) databases were used to perform the analysis. Within the identified HI, two HI levels were determined based on temperature difference. The results revealed a statistically significant negative correlation between HIi and both forest co%ver and forest fragmentation (forest edge density and ratio of mean forest patch size to HI size). Artificial surface was positively correlated with HIi . The results contribute to the understanding of the spatial distribution of HI and HIi and provide informati%on for spatial planning and policy-making to reduce the negative impact of HI.

Title:Vpliv rabe tal na prostorsko razporeditev in intenzivnost toplotnih otokov v Sloveniji
Abstract:Toplotni otoki (HI) so pogost antropogeni pojav, ki ponazarjajo temperaturno razliko med umetnimi površinami (urbana območja) in okolico (ruralna območja). Namen prispevka je ugotoviti vpliv rabe tal na prostorsko razporeditev in intenziteto HI (HIi) v Sloveniji. Uporabili smo karto temperature površja MODIS LST in podatke rabe tal Corine Land Cover (CLC). Na podlagi temperaturnih razlik smo določili dve ravni HI. Rezultati so pokazali statistično značilno negativno korelacijo med HIi in gozdnatostjo in/ali fragmentiranostjo gozdov (gostota gozdnega roba in razmerje povprečna velikost gozdne zaplate - velikost HI). Umetne površine vplivajo na povečanje HIi. Rezultati prispevajo k razumevanju prostorske razporeditve HI in HIi ter dajejo informacije za prostorsko načrtovanje in oblikovanje politik za zmanjšanje negativnega vpliva HI.
