Figure 3. Temperature images derived from airborne TIMS data acquired on July 14, 1995 at 2:45am. The temperatures vary from 38 to 104 degree F, with red: 98-104; orange: 92-97; yellow: 86-91; green: 80-85; cyan: 74-79; magenta: 68-73; blue: 62-67; and black: < 61.

(A) Scottsdale airport. Note the higher temperatures associated with large amounts of pavement in contrast to the cooler undeveloped lands to the NW. Metal-roofed buildings have the lowest temperatures in the image.

(B) Mixed residential region to the SE of Mountain View and Scottsdale Roads. Note the significantly lower temperatures due to a much higher percentage of vegetation and lakes (golf courses).
