Abstract/Contents:"In the last decade, due to prolonged and persisting drought conditions, California initially restricted water that can be allocated for outdoor landscape irrigation , and subsequently developed a plan to replace turf in Californias lawns by offering rebates for turf removal to homeowners. Nevertheless, the removal of turf may lead to a drastic increase of urban heat in inland areas of California, with a focus on Riverside. Temperature differences among different land covers were assessed over time using airborne and satellite thermal imagery. Airborne thermal imagery were acquired over selected areas of the city of Riverside, including neighborhoods with different income levels. Two flights during the summer of 2018 and one flight in 2019 flights were carried out in 2018 and 2019. Spatial statistics and cluster analyses were used to characterize the cool and/or heat island effects due each cover type at multiple scales: from the single household to the neighborhood scale. Preliminary analyses reveal that middle-of-the-day temperatures were the highest in artificial turf lawns, followed by xeriscape (both with temperatures as high as 88 ┬░C). Turf home lawns had temperatures generally 16 to 38 ┬░C cooler than artificial turf and xeriscape lawns. The differences between landscape types were exacerbated by income levels: low income neighborhoods were characterized by higher overall temperatures than higher-income ones. Preliminary results also show that artificial turf sport venues were a temperature hotspot across the area of interest."
