    Abstract

    Temperature changes in many urban areas in Malaysia due urban physical lanscape changes is known as a major contribution to the changes of quality urban life in many urban areas in Malaysia. Ipoh city is the third largest city of Malaysia where population, industrial and traffic density are relatively high increased. Therefore, it is expected that the temperature will significant increased very high. This study were analyzing the time series data of mean maximum temperature, mean minimum temperature and mean annual temperature from 1970-2000(31 years). All raw data is collected from Malaysian Meteorology Department (MMD), Malaysia. Data is analyzed in two parts by running Linear Regression and taking anomalies of all times periods; whole period from 1970-2000, phase one 1970-1980 (11 years), 1981 -1990 (10 years) and 1991 -2000. Linear Regression analyzing of data used to find out the trends of temperature change of Ipoh city, Perak. It is expected that during 1970-2000 temperature will increased significantly due the changes in urban physical landscape to urban areas. Results, temperature having increased significantly for the whole period from 1970-2000.
