The study is an urban to subregional scale investigation that uses 1-km data products from NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) Moderate-Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) for day and night LST and 30-m LCLU information from the 2001 National Land Cover Data (NLCD-2001).
The NLCD-2001 product at 30-m spatial resolution represents land cover based on Landsat 7 data from 1999-2003 and provides 16 LCLU classes (an additional four classes are avail able in Alaska only and another nine classes in coastal areas).
A methodology was developed using the NLCD-2001 LCLU grids over the study area to delineate rural, suburban, and urban zones and resample to a 1-km grid.
To be consistent with the MODIS LST data spatial resolution and because people spend most of their time outside a 30 m x 30 m area, we resampled the raw NLCD-2001 data in this study from 30 m to 1 km in order to evaluate the LCLU and living environment effects on SBP, DBI, and HTN.
