Abstract: This paper describes a research about urban thermal environment in the city of Campinas, Southeast region of Brazil. The aim of the work is to identify urban heat islands and their relation with land use. Data collection was carried out through temperature measurements in fixed points in a central area of the city with different configurations: horizontal occupation mixed with vertical; predominantly horizontal; densely built area with vertical occupation and an area near to urban park. Data were collected in summer and winter periods. The study area was defined through field research, compilation of maps and cartographic bases and aerial photographs, so that the different urban occupation patterns could be identified. The presence of vegetation and water bodies was also verified. Geographical Information Systems (GIS) allowed generating new data, through processing obtained information about sectors with different geographical expression. Interrelationship between climatic parameters and spatial urban organization was the basis for the analysis. Results show that maximum diurnal temperatures were not much affected by the urban configuration, a different behaviour as compared with nocturnal temperatures, which show meaningful variation depending on the urban configuration and land use.
