Event description
The International Society of Environmental Epidemiology invites you to the first of a series of 3 webinars on Climate Change and Health.

About this event

The global scale, complexity and urgency of climate change is changing the way we live and inevitably, the way we do research. From the types of data we collect, to the methods we used and the way we communicate them to the world. This is why, at the ISEE European Chapter we have put together a series of 3 webinars that will address each of these aspects and provide resources to better equip researchers to continue fighting climate change.

In this first seminar, we will be exploring 'New data sources and applications' accompanied by world-leading researchers in environmental epidemiology. Here, a snapshot of what they have ready for us!

Exploring Copernicus services and satellite data for environmental health applications

Dr Rochelle Schneider

This talk demonstrates how Copernicus products can benefit public health applications by tackling current limitations in environmental epidemiology associated with discontinuous spatiotemporal records from ground monitors. Data from Earth Observation satellites, climate, and atmospheric models can offer the spatiotemporal coverage required to reconstruct historical trends of human exposures related to air pollution, built environment, and climate change.

Bridging the gap: how climate reanalysis can advance environmental epidemiology

Dr Claudia Di Napoli

By providing spatially and temporally resolved information, climate reanalysis datasets have recently started to make their way in environmental epidemiology research. In my talk I will first present on climate reanalyses with a focus on ERA5, the latest dataset by the European Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF). I will then illustrate examples of ERA5 applications in epidemiology and public health.

Sharing Data through Open-source Software: An R Exposure Data Package for US-based Tropical Cyclone Epidemiology

Dr Brooke Anderson

Tropical cyclone epidemiology can be advanced through exposure assessment methods that are comprehensive and consistent across space and time, as these facilitate multiyear, multistorm studies. We created an open-source data set with data for the US at the county level on exposure to four tropical cyclone hazards: peak sustained wind, rainfall, flooding, and tornadoes, which we share as an R package. This talk will discuss this dataset and how similar datasets can be shared as open-source software packages, to facilitate efficient and reproducible epidemiological research.

Chair: Massimo Stafoggia

Active ISEE member and part of the ISEE Europe Chapter. He graduated in Statistical Sciences on 2001 and took a Master of Science degree in Biostatistics at the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH), Cambridge, USA. He has co-authored more than 80 scientific papers in international journals and has been involved in several national and international projects aimed at developing spatiotemporal models to predict daily PM concentrations at fine spatial grid over the whole Italy and in the Stockholm county, by use of satellite data.

The International Society for Environmental Health (ISEE) is scientific association in environmental epidemiology that impacts research, training and policy worldwide. We aim to act as a platform to foster scientific and policy discussions around issues impacting our environment and health. If you are interested in joining, check our membership option here.
