... Many studies have shown that human thermal adaptation depends on the climate zone (Kumar and Sharma, 2020;Pantavou et al., 2013;Li et al., 2023;Lam and Lau, 2018). People who grew up in high-temperature areas are more adaptable to a hot environment and have higher thermal perception (Lam and Lau, 2018;Hwang et al., 2022). ...
... The ecological supply capability of landscape multifunctionality was calculated using the ratio of the landscape function actual improvement, the maximum potential improvement of urban parks compared to non-park urban areas or the entire study area, and a value (SUHI, SVG, SB, SW, SR) between 0 and 1. Among them, we considered a full score of SUHI when the regulating capacity of vegetation was ≥ 3.2 ℃ in summer and ≥1 ℃ in winter, which was based on a previous long-term study (Yan et al., 2023a). The variables for each landscape function were calculated using the following equations: ...
... Insights and products derived from geospatial data are solving a myriad of complex problems down the gamut from increasing fuel efficiency, monitoring logistic networks, to sustainability-driven urban designs (Lee and Kang, 2015;Lipson et al., 2022;Wagner et al., 2022;Arribas-Bel and Fleischmann, 2022;Wang et al., 2022;Li et al., 2022b). The datasets that enabled these advancements are mostly collected using a variety of methods such as surveying, remote sensing, mobile mapping, and crowdsourcing (Li et al., 2016;Huang and Wang, 2020;Jin et al., 2022;Heikinheimo et al., 2020;Luo et al., 2022;Yan and Huang, 2022). ...
... This shift leads to the urban heat island (UHI) effect, in which temperatures are higher in urban areas than nearby non-urban areas (Deilami et al., 2018;Li et al., 2016;Xu et al., 2013). High local temperatures in urban areas have numerous adverse eco-environmental effects, including increasing the frequency of extreme precipitation (Gu et al., 2019), air and water pollution (Wei et al., 2021;Shi et al., 2022a), and heat waves (He et al., 2022a;Li et al., 2022;Wu et al., 2020), as well as the risk of mortality (Lowe, 2016), while also decreasing biodiversity (Aronson et al., 2014). Consequently, exploring urbanization's contribution to and effect on regional warming can assist with the development of active adaptation and mitigation strategies for climate change (Yang et al., 2021a). ...

... There are several reasons for this. First, vegetation can provide shade, reducing direct solar radiation on the ground and decreasing the absorption of heat radiation by the ground [17][18][19]. Second, through the transpiration of plants and their low albedo, some of the solar radiation can be absorbed. ...
... In the case of C. olor, very few birds spend the winter in Korea (Meng et al. 2020); therefore, in this study, we only analyzed the changes in the populations of C. cygnus and C. columbianus. The wintering status of wild birds in this area has been monitored since 1999 through a national winter waterbird census (conducted once in January every year). ...
