NH014:
Hydroclimate and Human Health





Session ID#: 26750

Session Description:
This interdisciplinary session focuses on understanding the role of hydroclimatic processes (e.g. precipitation, streamflow, humidity, temperature) in creating seasonality and interannual variability in environmental conditions favorable for exposure to pathogenic agents (e.g. viruses, parasites and bacteria) that lead to outbreaks of environmentally modulated water-related diseases. The session aims at expanding our knowledge-base on using data science to decode hydroclimatic big data and knowledge of large scale processes to help understand and predict disease outbreaks. Contributions are solicited that deal with boundaries of global public health, biostatistics, hydro-climate, environmental microbiology. Papers are invited that deal with diseases such as (but not limited to) Cholera, Gastroenteritis, Schistosomiasis, Zika, Dengue, Malaria, West Nile and Yellow Fever. The session will also focus on issues of ecological water quality on human health.
