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.
