- Indicators for the assessment of Member States' GHG emission trends and burden sharing commitments: the Cohesion Countries. Pablo del Río; Félix Hernández // Energy & Environment;2005, Vol. 16 Issue 6, p937
Do Member States (MS) show clear signs that they are abating their GHG emissions? In view of recent trends in emissions, are the Burden Sharing Agreement targets too ambitious for the MS and, particularly, for the cohesion countries? Would this provide an argument for the revision of these...
- The role of particle size and chemistry in the association between summertime ambient air pollution and hospitalization for cardiorespiratory diseases Burnett, Richard T.; Cakmak, Sabit; Brook, Jeffery R.; Kreski, Daniel // Environmental Health Perspectives;Jun1997, Vol. 105 Issue 6, p614
In order to address the role that the ambient air pollution mix, comprised of gaseous pollutants and various physical and chemical measures of particulate matter, plays in exacerbating cardiorespiratory disease, daily measures of fine and coarse particulate mass, aerosol chemistry (sulfates and...

- Effects of ozone and other pollutants on the pulmonary function of adult hikers Gold, Diane R.; Dockery, Douglas W.; Rosner, Bernard A.; Speizer, Frank E.; Allen, George A.; Korrick, Susan A.; Hill, L. Bruce; Kimball, Kenneth D.; Neas, Lucas M. // Environmental Health Perspectives;Feb1998, Vol. 106 Issue 2, p93
This study evaluated the acute effects of ambient ozone (O3) fine particulate matter (PM2.5). and strong aerosol acidity on the pulmonary function of exercising adults. During the summers of 1991 and 1992, volunteers (18--64 years of age) were solicitedfrom hikers on Mt. Washington, New...
- Ambient air pollution and health. Klea Katsouyanni // British Medical Bulletin;Dec2003, Vol. 68 Issue 1, p143
The adverse health effects of air pollution became widely acknowledged after severe pollution episodes occurred in Europe and North America before the 1960s. In these areas, pollutant levels have decreased. During the last 15 years, however, consistent results, mainly from epidemiological...
- Cost Effectiveness of Internet Interventions: Review and Recommendations. Tate, Deborah F.; Finkelstein, Eric A.; Khavjou, Olga; Gustafson, Alison // Annals of Behavioral Medicine;2009, Vol. 38 Issue 1, p40
Internet interventions have a large potential for public health impact, and their efficacy has been established over the past 10â€“15 years. Cost effectiveness of Internet interventions is one of the most frequently cited reasons for developing such treatments. This paper provides a review...
- Discovering environmental causes of disease. Rappaport, Stephen M. // Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health;Feb2012, Vol. 66 Issue 2, p99
The article examines the environmental causes of diseases. Comparing disease proportions caused by genetic and environmental factors is the first step towards understanding the aetiologies of chronic diseases such as cancer and vascular disease. The nine environmental risk factors which...
