Modeling Framework for the Health Impact Assessment of Man-Induced Atmospheric Changes

Acronym:

MIASMA

Liaise ownership:

no

Description:

MIASMA links Climate models and scenarios of stratospheric ozone depletion to health impacts (vector-borne diseases, thermal heat mortality, and UV-related skin cancer). The models are driven by both population and climate/atmospheric scenarios, applied across baseline data on disease incidence and prevalence, climate conditions, and the state of the stratospheric ozone layer.
