Abstract:The urban structure of Lagos (Nigeria) the changes in the characteristics of the urban 'active surface' and the various activities in the urban centre have had considerable impact on the characteristics of the climate and the components of the climate of the urban centre. This paper analyses the various climatic modifications which have taken place in Lagos. It examines the distribution of net radiation, temperatures, evaporative and conductive-convective heat losses, as well as precipitation. It also discusses the application of the findings of urban climatology to urban and regional planning. Ref.
