Remotely sensed imagery provides an alternate view of spatial characteristics that in situ measurements typically lack. This is an advantage to utilizing such datasets for the analysis of environmental health vulnerabilities.
In this article, we argue for a fundamental refocusing of cyberinfrastructure to support climate science and the broader use of climate information. Our ultimate goal is to accelerate the use of state-of-the-art climate information in management and planning.
Giovanni has great potential for the investigation of different public health issues because a large variety of Earth system data variables are available in the system.
We present two case studies as a way to evaluate the performance of the AirNow Satellite Data Processor (ASDP): a Saharan dust transport event and a wildfire smoke event.
Initial pilot study results suggest that climatology maybe used as an early warning system of Visceral leishmaniasis in South Sudan. Remote sensing and health data indicated that below average precipitation and inundation in the transmission period (AMJJ) may correspond with higher disease occurrence in September, October, November and December.
The emergence of zoonotic diseases is ranking highly among public health issues that the World Health Organization, World Organisation for Animal Health, and numerous national organizations, companies and universities are attempting to address. In order to mitigate these types of health risks, they are adopting a multi-sectorial approach of collaboration known as the One World One Health approach.
