Abstract: Rapid changes in land use / land cover due to urban expansion, industrialization affect biodiversity and ecosystem activities, as well as local and regional climate. One of the most serious impacts of urbanization is the formation of the Urban Heat Island (UHI) effect. Unnao is the main urban area between the two metros connected by transport corridors. Unnao faced rapid urban development in the Unnao region due to its industrial development, with the rapid change of the LULC model which significantly influenced the LST. Rapid changes in land use and land cover types have brought significant changes to the LST. Urban development affects the environment. This study attempted to study the effect of land use / land cover (LULC) on soil surface temperature in the Unnao region using multi-temporal satellite data. LST was extracted using Landsat 4-5 TM and Landsat 8 OLI during the periods 2005, 2011 and 2019. Result will be analyzed by change in land use of Unnao to the change in LST in the three respective years.
