This manuscript outlines an attempt to attribute the rise in ground surface temperature in Bangkok as a result of both global climate change and urbanization. This is po-tentially a valuable contribution to the climate science community because it suggests that it may be possible to gain information on past climates from urban environments, which have traditionally been avoided in subsurface heat flow studies. However, there are several questions that should be answered to establish that the coupling between ground surface temperatures and surface air temperatures in the study area as these two measurements may or may not be well coupled (Gosnold et al., 1997; Mann and Schmidt, 2003; Nitoui and Beltrami, 2005; Beltrami et al., 2005). Many of these studies have focused on areas with significant snow accumulation or deforestation but they do S443 suggest the need to investigate the relationship between ground surface and surface air temperatures. 2.
