Objective To investigate the impact of meteorological factors on the incidence of hand,foot and mouth disease( HFMD) in Xiamen City. Methods Path analysis model was used to analyze the direct and indirect effects of meteorological factors and intestinal virus activity on the incidence of HFMD. The Path parameters were estimated and tested by using the maximum likelihood method. The model was evaluated and modified by absolute indices,relative indices and parsimony indices. Results Meteorological factors had lag effect on the incidence of HFMD in about 5 days. Relative humidity,large evaporation,atmospheric pressure,intestinal virus activity and long vacation directly affect the incidence of HFMD,whereas temperature,precipitation,large evaporation,water vapor pressure,relative humidity,air pressure,maximum wind speed and wind direction had indirect effect on that. There was no significant correlation between wind speed and the incidence of HFMD. Conclusions Meteorological factors are closely related to
Green roofs have been proven to help reduce heat islands. This page provides a brief overview of the role of green roofs in mitigating the heat island effect, including green roof types, other environmental and social benefits, and cost-benefit considerations.. A green roof, or rooftop garden, is a vegetative layer grown on a rooftop. Green roofs provide shade, remove heat from the air, and reduce temperatures of the roof surface and surrounding air. Using green roofs in cities or other built environments with limited vegetation can moderate the heat island effect, particularly during the day. Green roof temperatures can be 30-40°F lower than those of conventional roofs and can reduce city-wide ambient temperatures by up to 5°F.1,2 In addition, green roofs can reduce building energy use by 0.7% compared to conventional roofs, reducing peak electricity demand and leading to an annual savings of $0.23 per square foot of the roofs surface.1,3 These temperature reduction and energy efficiency ...
To study the impact of meteorological data and respiratory viral infections on invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD) rates. We analysed all notifications of IPD and respiratory viral infections to the Microbiological Reporting System of Catalonia (2006-2012). Correlations between rates of IPD and viral infections (influenza virus, respiratory syncytial virus [RSV] and adenovirus), and meteorological variables (temperature, humidity, hours of sunshine, wind speed and number of days with rainfall) were assessed using Spearmans correlation coefficient and negative binomial regression models. We found significant correlations between monthly rates of IPD and monthly rates of all respiratory viruses and meteorological factors. However, after multiple regression analysis, associations remained between IPD rates and influenza rates and reductions in temperature in the total population, and between IPD rates and adenovirus rates in children aged |5 years. When models were repeated for the total population using

COVID-19 has become a pandemic. The influence of meteorological factors on the transmission and spread of COVID-19 is of interest. This study sought to examine the associations of daily average temperature (AT) and relative humidity (ARH) with the daily counts of COVID-19 cases in 30 Chinese provinces (in Hubei from December 1, 2019 to February 11, 2020 and in other provinces from January 20, 2020 to Februarys 11, 2020). A Generalized Additive Model (GAM) was fitted to quantify the province-specific associations between meteorological variables and the daily cases of COVID-19 during the study periods. In the model, the 14-day exponential moving averages (EMAs) of AT and ARH, and their interaction were included with time trend and health-seeking behavior adjusted. Their spatial distributions were visualized. AT and ARH showed significantly negative associations with COVID-19 with a significant interaction between them (0.04, 95% confidence interval: 0.004-0.07) in Hubei. Every 1 °C increase in ...
The term heat island describes built up areas that are hotter than nearby rural areas. The annual mean air temperature of a city with 1 million people or more can be 1.8-5.4°F (1-3°C) warmer than its surroundings. In the evening, the difference can be as high as 22°F (12°C). Heat islands can affect communities by increasing summertime peak energy demand, air conditioning costs, air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, heat-related illness and mortality, and water quality.. ...
An urban heat island (UHI) is an urban area or metropolitan area that is significantly warmer than its surrounding rural areas due to human activities.. The accelerated growth without the correct planning of the urban sprawl in Mérida has generated an increase in the number of urban heat islands, a phenomenon that occurs in cities when land previously covered with trees and vegetation is transformed into an urban space for housing, industrial or commercial use, so it is necessary to take action in this regard as soon as possible in the state capital, considered Luis Bojórquez Tapia, researcher at the Institute of Ecology of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM).. Addressed in this regard, the specialist stated that similar cases have been presented in Phoenix, Arizona, United States, where the first initiatives to reduce this problem are already being implemented, and that they could be replicated in Yucatan, once the laboratory for climate change study is installed..

At the center of this discussion is the explicit role of the GHGs in the observed warming. The terrestrial data likely remain contaminated to some degree by factors related to land use change, including vegetation change, urban heat island, changes in wetland distribution, etc. I have no doubt that due diligence has been exercised to remove the effects of the urban heat island from the terrestrial record (this has been discussed at length elsewhere on RC and other forums), but it is reasonable to conclude that artifacts related to economic activity likely remain. In light of this probability, which data should we use to validate the forcing effect of the GHGs? What are the implications of using only the ocean record?. I am an academic ecologist, and I speak and write regularly about land use change and climate change. While I have a better understanding than most on issues related to climate sensitivity, I would benefit from a direct, clear discussion of the relative importance of the forcing ...

A quarter century ago, the Cato Institute released a revolutionary book, Patient Power: Solving Americas Health Care Crisis, by John C. Goodman and Gerald L. Musgrave. Patient Power introduced the United States to a bold and radical way of thinking about health care.. When third parties pay medical bills, Goodman and Musgrave wrote, providers come to view third‐​party payers as their customers, not the patients. As a result, instead of maximizing patient satisfaction, providers deliver care to maximize their revenue given third‐​party payment formulas. Instead of falling, costs rise. Third‐​party payment is the reason patients cant talk to their doctors by phone, email, or Skype. It is why patients dont have Uber‐​type doctor house calls at night and on weekends. Patient Power showed that if people controlled and managed their own health care dollars, the medical marketplace would change radically-almost overnight.. Indeed, Patient Power changed the world. Thanks largely to ...

Dec. 23, 2012 ? Scientists at The University of Manchester have identified how cells know which way up they need to be. The discovery could help in the fight against cancer because in the early stages of the disease the cells become disorganised.. Professor Charles Streuli and Dr Nasreen Akhtar of the Wellcome Trust Centre for Cell-Matrix Research have conducted new research that leads to a better understanding of cell polarity. Properly organised tissues are vital to maintaining functional organs and a healthy body. Part of being organised includes cells being in the correct position within the tissue and the right way up, because the top and bottom of cells have different functions.. The extracellular matrix (ECM) is a layer of protein rich material that surrounds tissues and helps to design and shape all of our organs. Previous studies have demonstrated that the ECM sticks to the cells and guides them into the right position. What hadnt been identified is how the ECM communicates that ...

Materials and Methods: Meteorological data from 2004 to 2009 were obtained from the web-based Monthly Weather Reports of the Meteorological Administration database. Patients with vestibular neuritis who visited Incheon St. Marys Hospital during this same period and presented the precise day on which the symptoms appeared were included in this study involving a retrospective chart review. Twelve meteorological factors were analyzed between the days when vestibular neuritis onset was observed and the days when vestibular neuritis did not occur. Time lags (D-1-D-7) which mean 1-7 days before the onset were included to assess a possible delayed meteorological effect in relation to the onset of vestibular neuritis. Seasonal incidence of vestibular neuritis and a relationship with seasonal patterns of weather parameters were evaluated. ...
Hand, foot and mouth disease (HFMD) incidence is a critical challenge to disease control and prevention in parts of China, particularly Guangxi. However, the association between socioeconomic factors and meteorological factors on HFMD is still unclear. This study applied global and local Morans I to examine the spatial pattern of HFMD and series analysis to explore the temporal pattern. The effects of meteorological factors and socioeconomic factors on HFMD incidence in Guangxi, China were analyzed using GeoDetector Model. This study collected 45,522 cases from 87 counties in Guangxi during 2015, among which 43,711 cases were children aged 0-4 years. Temporally, there were two HFMD risk peaks in 2015. One peak was in September with 7890 cases. The other appeared in May with 4687 cases of HFMD. A high-risk cluster was located in the valley areas. The tertiary industry, precipitation and second industry had more influence than other risk factors on HFMD incidence with explanatory powers of 0.24, 0.23 and

SUMMARY A seasonal pattern with winter peak in acute myocardial infarction incidence and cardiovascular disease risk factors is observed in studies worldwide. However, several previous studies have methodical limitations and few are performed in cold climate areas. The aim of this thesis is to assess the effect of season and meteorological factors on first-ever myocardial infarction and the seasonal variation in cardiovascular disease risk factors in a subarctic adult population with long-term follow-up, using appropriate methods with adjudicated outcomes and well-defined exposures. The population-based Tromsø Study consists of more than 40,000 individuals living in a subarctic climate in Northern Norway. The cohort members have been examined up to nine times in six repeated health surveys in the years between 1974 and 2008. Data on myocardial infarction and risk factors have been collected throughout follow-up. The thesis consists of three studies. The first study is an analysis of the ...

The WRF-Chem model coupled with a single-layer urban canopy model (UCM) is integrated for 5 years at convection-permitting scale to investigate the individual and combined impacts of urbanization-induced changes in land cover and pollutant emissions on regional climate in the Yangtze River Delta (YRD) region in eastern China. Simulations with the urbanization effects reasonably reproduced the observed features of temperature and precipitation in the YRD region. Urbanization over the YRD induces an urban heat island (UHI) effect, which increases the surface temperature by 0.53 °C in summer and increases the annual heat wave days at a rate of 3.7 d yr −1 in the major megacities in the YRD, accompanied by intensified heat stress. In winter, the near-surface air temperature increases by approximately 0.7 °C over commercial areas in the cities but decreases in the surrounding areas. Radiative effects of aerosols tend to cool the surface air by reducing net shortwave radiation at the surface. ...
We describe and show results from a series of field campaigns using balloon-borne instruments launched from India and Saudi Arabia during the summers 2014-2017 to study the nature, formation and impacts of the Asian Tropopause Aerosol Layer (ATAL). The campaign goals were to i) characterize the optical, physical and chemical properties of the ATAL, ii) assess its impacts on water vapor and ozone, and iii) understand the role of convection in its formation. In order to address these objectives, we launched 68 balloons from 4 locations, one in Saudi-Arabia and 3 in India, with payload weights ranging from 1.5 kg to 50 kg. We measured meteorological parameters, ozone, water vapor, and aerosol backscatter, concentration, volatility and composition in the Upper Troposphere and Lower Stratosphere (UTLS) region. We found peaks in aerosol concentrations of up to 25 part/cm3 for radius | 75 nm, associated with Scattering Ratio at 940 nm of ~1.9 near the cold point tropopause. During medium-duration balloon

Here, we report aerobiological stability characteristics of four different species of Gram-negative bacteria (P. agglomerans, S. marcescens, E. coli, and X. arboricola) which previously have been proposed or used as biothreat simulants or general model organisms in bioaerosol research. A comprehensive experimental data set was generated based on more than 200 aerosol experiments to allow for direct comparison of the aerobiological stability characteristics of different species of Gram-negative bacteria in single-cell particles and cell clusters produced from different spray liquids (H2O, PBS, SCM, and SCM-PBS).. Although the aerobiological stability characteristics of several species of Gram-negative bacteria already have been investigated, including S. marcescens (7, 8, 17, 18), E. coli (19-25), and P. agglomerans (6, 12, 26-30), most of these studies were performed more than 3 decades ago; thus, several knowledge gaps still remain. An inherent challenge regarding the aerobiological stability ...
The dynamical and microphysical processes that influence water vapor concentrations in the tropical tropopause layer (TTL) are investigated in simulations of ice clouds along backward trajectories of air parcels sampled during three flights of the Airborne Tropical Tropopause Experiment over the central to eastern tropical Pacific in boreal fall 2011. ERA-Interim reanalysis temperatures interpolated onto the flight tracks have a negligible (-0.09 K) cold bias compared to aircraft measurements of tropical cold point temperature thus permitting case study simulations of TTL dehydration. When the effects of subgrid-scale waves, cloud microphysical processes, and convection are considered, the simulated water vapor mixing ratios on the final day of 40 day backward trajectories exhibit a mean profile that is within 20-30% of the mean of the aircraft measurements collected during vertical profiling maneuvers between the 350 and 410 K potential temperature levels. Averaged over the three flights, ...
Although complex hydrological models with detailed physics are becoming more common, lumped and semi-distributed models are still used for many applications and offer some advantages, such as reduced computational cost. Most of these semi-distributed models use the concept of the hydrological response unit or HRU. In the original conception, HRUs are defined as homogeneous structured elements with similar climate, land use, soil and/or pedotransfer properties, and hence a homogeneous hydrological response under equivalent meteorological forcing. This work presents a quantitative methodology, called hereafter the principal component analysis and hierarchical cluster analysis or PCA/HCPC method, to construct HRUs using gridded meteorological data and hydrological parameters. The PCA/HCPC method is tested using the water evaluation and planning system (WEAP) model for the Alicahue River Basin, a small and semi-arid catchment of the Andes, in Central Chile. The results show that with four HRUs, it is

Introduction. Insects are very diverse and play fundamental roles in ecosystems. Adult lepidopterans (butterflies and moths) are important pollinators of wild plants and also many food crops (Kondo, 2012). Their larvae, in contrast, have a great negative impact on plants, eating their leaves, flowers, fruits, seeds, branches and even roots (Weisse and Siemann, 2008). Out of their natural habitat lepidopterans can become important pests. The owlet moths, Anicla infecta (Ochsenheimer, 1816), Elaphria agrotina (Guenée, 1852) and Spodoptera frugiperda (J.E. Smith, 1797) are good examples of this. They occur throughout the American continent and recently, S. frugiperda has also been detected in the African continent (Goergen et al., 2016), Europe (CABI, 2017) and India (Shylesha et al., 2018). Their caterpillars are polyphagous, with a strong preference for grasses (Teston et al., 2001; Lafontaine, 2004; Casmuz et al., 2010; Specht et al., 2014; Montezano et al., 2018). The caterpillar of A. infecta ...
An urban heat island is a metropolitan area that is significantly warmer than its surrounding rural areas due to human activities. The temperature difference usually is larger at night than during the day, and is most apparent when winds are weak. The main cause of the urban heat island is modification of the land surface by urban development which uses materials which effectively retain heat. Waste heat generated by energy usage is a secondary contributor. As a population center grows, it tends to expand its area, and increase in its average temperature. How far away does this effect persist? Does it significantly contribute to global warming?. !ADVERTISEMENT!. The heat generated by everyday activities in metropolitan areas has a significant enough warming effect to influence both the local area and the character of the jet stream and other major atmospheric systems during winter months, according to a trio of climate researchers.. Other researchers have also found an impact on local weather ...
To predict the intensity of a pollen season is a challenge. A long-term forecast concerning the intensity is not possible for most allergenic plants. The intensity of a flowering period is dependent on meteorological factors, like temperature, precipitation and hours of sunshine. Additionally, accurate predictions are limited to the period when accurate weather forecast are available. The assessments of the Austrian Pollen Information Service are based on current and historic pollen data, the current phenology, temperature models and the expertise and experience of our aerobiologists. As soon as we can confidently give predictions for the intensity for a particular allergenic plant (we provide this for the following plants: hazel, alder, ash, birch, grasses, mugwort, ragweed) it is announced in the current written pollen forecast. Please consider that regional differences may lead to differing pollen season durations, pollen season starts and ends in the nine federal states of Austrian. The ...

The DOMINO (Diel Oxidant Mechanisms in relation to Nitrogen Oxides) campaign was carried out from 21 November to 8 December 2008 at the El Arenosillo station (SW of Spain) in a coastal-rural environment. The main weather conditions are analysed using local meteorological variables, meteorological soundings and synoptic maps, as well as back trajectories of the air masses using the HYSPLIT (Hybrid Single-Particle Lagrangian Integrated Trajectory Model) model and a high spatial resolution of meteorological fields. Measurements of the main meteorological parameters were collected both from the surface and from a tall tower. A detailed land use analysis was performed on a 80 km scale showing the main types of vegetation and land use. Also the main anthropogenic atmospheric emission sources - both industrial-urban from Huelva and from the urban Seville area - are shown. A study to identify air mass origins and their variation with height was carried out. In this intensive campaign, air masses coming ...
The obeservational studies (observation of temperature data) have shown that the climate of a city or an urban area is significantly different from that of the surrounding rural areas. The differences are due to four factors. First, urbanization changes the thermal properties of the earth surface. For example, areas of concrete, asphalt and other building materials replace vegetation. The result of these changes is a higher surface temperature of the urbanized area. Second, buildings and other urban structures in the urban area are obstacles to the wind. The obstacles alter the general flow patterns and generate air turbulence. Third, urbanization changes the moisture conditions at the earth surface. The relatively moist vegetated surface of the original rural area is replaced by a dry surface. Very little evaporation occurs from the surface which results in a drier and warmer surface air over the city. Last, the urbanized area emits heatand pollutants to the atmosphere. As a consequence of the ...

Flexible pavements are surfaces that rely on the strength of the individual component layers and will deform when placed under stress. Hot mix asphalt is the most common flexible pavement, and typically is the least expensive pavement type available. You may not think of asphalt pavement as being sustainable, but it is one of the few pavements that is regularly recycled and reused in new applications, reducing the need for additional natural resources. When trying to mitigate the Urban Heat Island Effect, designers typically have two options with asphalt pavement. Either they can apply a coating that will reflect the suns rays back into the atmosphere, or apply a chip sealing to the surface of the pavement. Chip sealing typically consists of two layers: a lighter color aggregate that is bound to the pavement below with a tack coat of liquid bitumen.. ...

Present work proposes the application of several clustering techniques (k-means, SOM k-means, k-medoids, and agglomerative hierarchical) to analyze the climatological conditions in different places. To do so, real-life data from data acquisition stations in Spain are analyzed, provided by AEMET (Spanish Meteorological Agency). Some of the main meteorological variables daily acquired by these stations are studied in order to analyse the variability of the environmental conditions in the selected places.
