Abstract

The availability of Green Open Space, especially in urban areas, is currently very much needed due to the function of vegetation, which is the main element of green open space, has many benefits such as reducing carbon emissions (CO2) in the air and changing the microclimate (reducing surface temperature). This study aims to analyze the effect of vegetation on surface temperatures around the area of Makassar State University Jl. A.P. Makassar City Pettarani by comparing the area of built and green areas in the study site and analyzing the carbon absorption capacity of existing vegetation. The method used is analysis with Geographic Information Systems in processing high-resolution image data. The results showed that the amount of green cover in the study location was able to reduce CO2 produced by the built area by 17.74%. The carbon absorption of the vegetation can be increased by increasing the amount of green space both horizontally and vertically. The need for vegetation also needs to be increased by 2.75 hectares to reduce the surface temperature to reach the Makassar City thermal comfort limit of 25-27 oC.
