The fast changes in the land use and land cover of an urban area have become a major environmental concern recently in Kabul City. Land Surface Temperature, monitoring major elements of climate changes in a region studies. This paper aimed to explain the technique for land surface temperature differences analysis with the data from Landsat_7 Enhanced Thematic Mapper plus (ETM+) and Landsat_8 OLI/TIR thermal infrared sensor (TIR) of Kabul province five districts at 12th Feb 2000 and 13th Feb 2015. The results exhibited that there is enormous increase in urban areas as well as in LST in study area. Overall, remote sensing and GIS is effective approaches for analysis and monitoring of land surface temperature.
