Well, it's a change in temperature following a change in radiative forcing, so it would be °C/(W/m^2)

Seems sad this question marathon only has 21 posts...

Well, 22 now...

An urban heat island or urban heat island effect (at least I think that's how you say it) is an effect where a urban (city) area is much warmer than the surrounding rural (countryside) areas due to much more human activity. Please tell me if I'm wrong. :)
