Abstract

The aim of this progress report is to review recent research in 3 strongly emergent areas of human biometeorology, namely human thermal comfort assessment, ultraviolet radiation (UVR) and climate and vector borne disease. Because human biometeorology focuses on understanding the reciprocal, but often inequitable, relationship between atmospheric processes and humans, and how this plays out at a range of time and spatial scales, it fits firmly within the discipline of geography by adddressing problems associated with the spatial, human-environment and earth science traditions of physical geography
