It has been interesting to study the effect of urbanisation on the climate of cities over many years. Climatic consequences of urbanisation have long been noted and there have been many studies on the subject. Air pollution and other complex characteristics of urban environments affect the local climate under the influence of many factors. The major ones that contribute to excessive warming of towns and cities are:

Changes that roads and buildings cause to the thermal characteristics of surfaces

Alterations in air patterns due to reduced diffusion of heat

Added heat generation by human activities.
