Air pollution, heat and health in Brazil under climate change

Organization: Yale University, USA

Lead Researchers: Michelle Bell

Year: 2020 - 2023

This project will estimate air pollution (fine particulate matter (PM2.5) and ozone), heat waves, and days of high or low temperatures under present day conditions and in the future under climate change for two major Brazilian cities. The project will also develop estimates of how weather and air pollution impact mortality in Brazil.
