Earth System Science (ESS) seeks to improve our understanding, observation, and prediction of interactions between earth system components. These components include land, atmosphere, water, and biosphere, as well as interactions of those spheres with human society, behavioral patterns, technologies, and economics. With respect to public health, ESS encompasses eco-epidemiology, social-ecological systems perspectives, and disease transmission models. In the present era of rapid and interacting global changes, advances in ESS are particularly critical to the maintenance and improvement of environmental quality and human health.
This special issue on “Advances in Earth System Science” invites technical and critical review papers that describe basic ESS research, ESS applications, and communication of ESS results relevant to public health. Contributions that have a significant impact on solving public health problems are particularly encouraged. The list of subject keywords provided below is intended to be illustrative, not comprehensive.
