“Heat island effect” refers to the temperature discrepancy in urban areas compared to surrounding rural areas. Urban areas tend to be a few degrees warmer because of the concentration of buildings with dark surfaces and streets with dark asphalt. The buildings and pavements absorb a significant amount of light and emit it as heat, thereby warming the city. Additionally, cities tend to be scarce in vegetation, which helps to cool the air through a process called evaporative cooling.
