Environmental Equity and Health: Understanding Complexity and Moving Forward
(American Public Health Association, 2003)
The authors invoke a population health perspective to assess the distribution of environmental hazards according to race/ethnicity, social class, age, gender, and sexuality and the implications of these hazards for ...
Modeling the Atmospheric Transport and Deposition of PCDD/F to the Great Lakes
(American Chemical Society (ACS), 2002)
Atmospheric deposition is a significant loading pathway for polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans (dioxin) to the Great Lakes. An innovative approach using NOAA's HYSPLIT atmospheric fate and transport model ...
Environmental Planning and Urban Health
(Academy of Medicine, Singapore, 2006)
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 ...
Simulating Regional-Scale Ozone Climatology over the Eastern United States: Model Evaluation Results
(Elsevier BV, 2004)
To study the potential impacts of climate change on air quality and public health over the eastern United States, a coupled global/regional-scale modeling system consisting of the NASA-Goddard Institute for Space Studies ...
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 ...
Intra-urban vulnerability to heat-related mortality in New York City, 1997–2006
(Elsevier BV, 2014)
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 ...
