Abstract

A statistical analysis of the differences between the daily minima in the centre of Barcelona and those of the airport, supplemented by temperature readings taken along a number of transects through the urban area, have revealed the intensity of the heat island effect, which reaches a maximum intensity of 8°C. It was also possible to plot the spatial configuration of the latter.
