Abstract

The danger of aerosols loading is dangerous to human as well as the atmosphere. The estimation of the aerosol loading can be very difficult in any location in West Africa because of its proximity to the influence of the north-east winds from the Sahara desert. An established analytical and statistical approach was used to estimate the aerosol loading over Kano. The maximum aerosol retention over Kano is 31.28%. The atmospheric constant which also describes the aerosols loading over Kano was found to be 0.708 and 0.8984. This means that Kano may be facing high thermal discomfort as well as spread of disease if not checked.
