Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

It has been known for centuries that climatic conditions affect human health in many different ways. The relationships between human health and climate have become especially important in the last decades. Global climate change, regional weather extremes, and large-scale epidemics are generating international interest in the effects of climate on human health and mortality.

This special issue is focused on all aspects of how weather and climate variability interact with human health. The editors encourage submissions that address novel theories and methods, those that question previously-reported ideas, and those that use prior results to predict possible future scenarios.
