We analyze the measurement data obtained during complex experiments conducted in summer 1997, 2000, and in the fall of 1999 in two localities, namely, in Tomsk and Kireevsk. Analysis has shown that the direct inflow of the anthropogenic heat into the urban atmosphere is not a primary source of formation of the so-called heat island. The local air circulation causes, to a greater extent, the formation of the pollution cap above the city.
