Abstract:Heat production, modification of the atmospheric composition and modification of surface characteristics determine the city climate. This chapter discusses some aspects of the microclimate of Ibadan, a typical indigenous tropical city with an area of about 130 km2 and a population of nearly one million. It focuses attention on temperature and humidity variations within the city. Being a pre-industrial city, the effects of atmospheric pollution from gases and dust in particular are minimal and restricted to the period when the dry and dusty airmass from the Sahara Desert brings the harmattan conditions between November and February.
