Climate and mortality in Australia: retrospective study, 1979-1990 and predicted impacts in five major cities in 2030.
Quantitative assessment of climatic and environmental health risks is necessary because changes in climate are expected. We therefore aimed to quantify the relationship between climatic extremes andExpand
