The development and implementation of seasonal profiles of anthropogenic heating in mesoscale models of cities was discussed. Observations of the urban heat island were also compared with modeled urban warming associated with anthropogenic heating. Anthropogenic heat releases in urban environments has distinct diurnal and seasonal characteristics. It is observed that anthropogenic heating in urban environments has an important role in transitional boundary-layer dynamics in the early morning hours.
