There is an article on the BBC talking about an alarming increase of heatwaves in India. It also says that:
Average temperatures in India have risen by around 0.7% between 1901 and 2018,
partly due to climate change.
The second part is vague and it is also getting close to a stereotype. In this case it is obvious that the growth of the cities and the expansion of the urban heat islands has a role. But it won't stop there because vast tract of forests have been cut down to make space for roads, railroads and other infrastructure. I guess that also the expansion of the arable land has a role. Once the surface is flattened the winds carry quickly away the moist and the air that was refreshed by water evaporation.
Is there any study that tries to quantify these factors and estimate the impact on the temperatures rise?
