Health Impacts from Climate-Change Induced Changes in Ozone Levels in 85 United States Cities
(Ovid Technologies (Wolters Kluwer Health), 2004)
Introduction: Global warming could impact human health through multiple pathways, including the shifting of ecosystems and associated vector-borne diseases, changes to water resources, and heat-related mortality. As the ...
Simulated Effects of Climate Change on Summertime Nitrogen Deposition in the Eastern US
(Elsevier BV, 2008)
It is anticipated that climate change may impact regional-scale air quality and atmospheric deposition in the coming decades. To simulate the effects of climate change on nitrogen (N) deposition across numerous watersheds ...
Estimating the Effects of Increased Urbanization on Surface Meteorology and Ozone Concentrations in the New York City Metropolitan Region
(Elsevier BV, 2007)
Land use and pollutant emission changes can have significant impacts on air quality, regional climate, and human health. Here we describe a modeling study aimed at quantifying the potential effects of extensive changes in ...
Climate Change, Ambient Ozone, and Health in 50 US Cities
(Springer Science + Business Media, 2007)
We investigated how climate change could affect ambient ozone concentrations and the subsequent human health impacts. Hourly concentrations were estimated for 50 eastern US cities for five representative summers each in ...
Assessing Ozone-Related Health Impacts under a Changing Climate
(Environmental Health Perspectives, 2004)
Climate change may increase the frequency and intensity of ozone episodes in future summers in the United States. However, only recently have models become available that can assess the impact of climate change on O3 ...
Projecting Heat-Related Mortality Impacts Under a Changing Climate in the New York City Region
(American Public Health Association, 2007)
Objectives. We sought to project future impacts of climate change on summer heat-related premature deaths in the New York City metropolitan region. Methods. Current and future climates were simulated over the northeastern ...
