Increase of energy consumption and deforestation within cities has already begun raising average urban temperature: this phenomenon is called urban heat island (UHL). A phenomenon in which there is a consistent increase in unban air temperature and a decrease in the relative humidity as compare to rural areas. Generally, research on this topic has been based on observational, theoretical and modeling approaches. During the recent years, many models have been developed to analyze the relationship between the UHI and the potential parameters such as meteorological or pedestrian level, turbulent model, urban complexity introduced by the roughness sub-layer, radiation model, and the anthropogenic heat including vehicles, stationary sources and metabolism. The paper first briefly describes the existing modeling approaches and it then reports the effect of landuse land-cover (LULC) on the UHI using the software Meso-scale Model version 5 (MM5). The city of Ottawa is used for this case study and the LULC parameters considered are: grass land, water and urban areas.
