This report focuses on research in this area published during 2007. It reflects the broad themes that emerged in the literature during this period, with an emphasis on urban-based work. Urban-based climatology is assuming increased importance in the literature, including the inherent complexity of urban environments, which makes their study difficult, and the potential for purposeful use of micrometeorology to improve the environment experienced by most of the population. Moreover, 2007 provided a rich vein of work in this area. The report is divided into 2 main sections, associated with the surface energy budget and its application to ‘natural’ settings and the study of urban climates
