Title: Urban Heat Islands Remote Sensing Lesson
Url: http://gistr3.delmar.edu/igett/LU_Peter.html
Publisher: Integrated Geospatial Education and Technology Training Project (iGETT)
Description: Urban heat islands are "a critical
environmental issue in many large cities. The consequences of
UHIs are elevated temperature, increased pollution and related
health risks, and higher energy consumption. Planners need to
be able to identify and quantify urban heat islands with GIS and remote sensing."

This lesson from iGETT includes a learning unit summary, instructor and student guides, curriculum and other support documents and a series of data files. The lesson plan will be helpful for students looking at the issue of heat islands in the remote sensing context. A quick, free registration is required to view or download any of the materials.
