Heat Exposure and Human Health in the Context of Climate Change (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Heat Exposure and Human Health in the Context of Climate Change introduces the effects of heat on human health, especially in the context of climate change. It utilizes case studies in addition to foundational knowledge and theory to demonstrate the epidemiological impact of heat and presents solutions for addressing this important public health issue. It is clearly organized to aid in understanding key questions such as why and how heat exposure impacts health, who are most vulnerable to heat exposure, and how to reduce impacts of heat exposure.

Providing guidance on public policy development as well as individual protection, Heat Exposure and Human Health in the Context of Climate Change is an interdisciplinary resource for researchers and policy makers in both public health and environmental science fields.
