High Temperatures Enhanced Acute Mortality Effects of Ambient Particle Pollution in the "Oven" City of Wuhan, China
We investigated whether the effect of air pollution on daily mortality is enhanced by high temperatures in Wuhan, China using data from 2001-2004.

Background:

We investigated whether the effect of air pollution on daily mortality is enhanced by high temperatures in Wuhan, China using data from 2001-2004. Wuhan has been called an "oven" city because of its hot summers. Approximately 4.5 million permanent residents live in the 201 km2 core area of the city.

Method:

We used a generalized additive model to analyze pollution, mortality, and covariate data. The estimates of the interaction between high temperature and air pollution were obtained from the main effects and pollutant-temperature interaction models.
