El clima urbano del Puerto de Valparaíso : construcción social del espacio en ciudades costeras
Hugo Romero, Melandra Molina, Alexis Vásquez e Pamela Smith
AbstractThe spatial distribution of air temperatures recorded along representative different hours and days of summer and winter seasons and at different places in the coastal city of Valparaíso, Chile, is analyzed. This harbor city is located at the Paci?c Ocean coast in subtropical latitudes at the Western coast of South America, under dominance of the Paci?c Anticyclone and the Humboldt Sea current. The speci?cal orographic conditions of the city site, characterized by a narrow ?at area and many hills and streams, as much as the sea in?uence, land uses and covers and urban design, explain the presence of cold islands and heat archipelagos and a urban heat island development properly only at winter nights. On the other hand, urban climates distribution is meaningfully associated with income levels of the urban population, representing strong in?uences of socioeconomic drivers on Latin American urban landscapes.
