Abstract: This paper presents partial results of a research about urban space in a warm-humid climate at the Northeast region of Brazil. The objective is to verify the air temperature distribution in the city through fixed measurements of environmental variables. Results of measurements for a summer period, in February 2006, are presented. The fixed points were defined using 20 mobile phones base stations in the city of Natal, RN, distributed along the four administrative zones. Measurements were carried out for 07 days, registering air temperature and relative humidity at intervals of 30 minutes. Statistical analysis with previous experiments shows that the mobile phone equipment, that emits microwaves and waves in radiofrequency do not interfere in the measurements. Results show a temperature variation among the fixed points from 24,8°C to 37,4°C (average 28,8°C), and from 39% to 94% relative humidity (average 71%). Obtained data were associated to satellite images to define the land use at each point, so correlating the density of occupation with the results of measurements. In fact, in some dense areas the highest temperatures and the lesser humidity values were found. The proposed methodology of measurements in fixed points using mobile phones base stations is original, provides safety to equipment and exposure standardization.
