CL2.5Climate and infectious disease interactions
|Co-Conveners: V. Ermert , A. Tompkins|
This session will focus on the interactions between climate and infectious disease incidence from monthly/seasonal to multi-decadal timescales. Contributions will examine how climate anomalies and extremes influence the distribution of infectious disease, both in tropical and extra-tropical regions. A wide range of methodologies will be reported including statistical and dynamical disease modelling approaches. In addition to using past and present observational climate data, studies that examine the potential of using state-of-the-art forecasting systems for developing health early warning systems, or climate scenario integrations to project future health risk, are particularly welcome.
