Abstract

Jakarta as the capital city of Indonesia with a very high population density, reaching up to 16,704 residents/km2 faces various challenges and urban problems, including crime, urban sprawl and increasing urban climate thermal sensations or commonly called as urban heat island (UHI). Environmental problems develop due to the increase of number of city dwellers population with the rapid human activities that emit excessive carbon emissivity and cause increase of temperature and thermal discomfort. Yearly Humidex values in Greater Jakarta (Jakarta, Bogor, Depok, Tangerang, and Bekasi) ranged from 27.2 to 41.2 °C that makes Greater Jakarta more uncomfortable and poor thermal sensation. Therefore, this study investigates the causes of temperature increases in the urban microclimate. Ordinal linear regression (OLR) techniques were applied for measuring thermal sensation through the microclimatic and public perceptions data and one-way ANOVA test. The study area covered in Kemayoran Meteorological Station. This study investigates the temperature, relative humidity, wind speed and the thermal sensation variables. As result, the OLR model concludes that every increase of 1 °C temperature and 1 m/s wind speed develops the response probability for TSV = 3 (Hot) by 200%.
