Abstract

Mean temperatures obtained from 28 midday motor traverses in the Durban area during the summer of,1968–69 show the center of the heat island to be displaced away from the central business district by the sea breeze. The spatial temperature wave across the center of the heat island is described by a simple harmonic model.
