Geohealth research is typically focused on environment-health impacts, but including physical and social mechanisms, and health and non-health trade-offs, can result in better policy benefits.
La exposición a pesticidas puede afectar la salud humana y de los ecosistemas. Una investigación reciente aplica modelos cartográficos en Ecuador, los cuales pueden ser exportados a otras escalas para limitar estos impactos adversos en otras regiones.
Pesticide exposures can impact human and ecosystem health, and new research uses a modeling approach applied to Ecuador that can be scaled and exported to limit negative impacts in other regions.
AGU’s interdisciplinary journal, GeoHealth, adds three new experts to its editorial board as it continues to grow in submissions, impact, and scope.
As cities face health threats from heat and air pollution—both expected to worsen from climate change—researchers pilot a community scientist effort to map air quality and improve urban health.
Papers are welcomed for a new cross-journal special collection exploring the links between air quality and lung cancer.
Global food systems depend on fertilizers with phosphate. We need to act now before this nonrenewable resource runs out.
Saharan dust events can spread bacterial pathogens over long distances, but we may be able to predict the human health risk from exposure.
At the intersection of human health and the environment, the emerging field called geohealth can teach us how not to repeat mistakes made in past disasters.
Many arid and semi-arid regions experience very little rainfall, but quite a bit of fog, which might be a viable source of drinking water.
