Mortality in Warsaw : is there any connection with weather and air pollution ?

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



City inhabitants are becoming more and more sensitive to weather changes and extreme atmospheric events. According to certain scientific reports, mortality from cardiovascular and respiratory diseases is associated with oppressive weather conditions. In the years 1994-95 a significant rise in mortality was found for Warsaw when particularly hot weather conditions, characteristic of a subtropical air mass, occurred. A synoptic approach in this type of research has been confirmed, and consideration of the influence of combined meteorological parameters on humans (via a biometeorogical index) is seen to be much more fruitful and justified than using separate meteorological parameters in calculations. - (BJ)
