This paper aims to investigate the influences of urban growth and green land cover decrease on land surface radiative properties and metropolitan climate of Bucharest in Romania. Landsat TM/ETM+/8 OLI and time series MODIS Terra/Aqua and NOAA AVHRR satellite data have been used to assess urban land cover– thermal environment over 2000-2018 years. As the city climate system is very sensitive to air and land surface temperature, land surface albedo, NDVI/EVI vegetation index, latent heat flux, these variables could have a significantly feedback to the projected climate change. The results show that the satellite-inferred radiative parameters agree well with the field-observations..
