Abstract

Land surface temperature (LST) is a significant ecological parameter in ecological change, urban heat islands, dry spell, general wellbeing, and for different fields. The present assessment intended to extract the LST and investigations associated with land transformation with Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI), Normalized Difference Built-up Index (NDBI) and The Normalized Difference Water Index (NDWI) in the Kheda (Kaira) District of Gujarat, India for month of May. However, some research has been done to study the same parameters using remote sensing, but not for the years between 2015 to 2020 and for Kheda District region. So we researched the phenomena with Landsat 8 data. All the operations carried out in QGIS software. It is totally opposite to the global observation and amazed us with the positive results like downfall of land surface temperature from 2015 to 2020. As per our implantation in the year 2015, the LST was very high (~50 C max and ~31 C min) compare to year 2020 (~47 C max and ~29 C min) with low radiation. This motivated us to correlate the Vegetation, Water body, Bare land, Built-up and rain fall and we found the increment in Vegetation and Water body and decrement in Bare land has impacted the LST on correct note to denote the temperature down. This is a good sign for environment changes in Kheda District from 2015 to 2020.
