An investigation of thresholds in air pollution-mortality effects

  title={An investigation of thresholds in air pollution-mortality effects},
  author={Gary Koop and Lise Tole},
  journal={Environmental Modelling and Software},
In this paper we introduce and implement new techniques to investigate threshold effects in air pollutionemortality relationships. Our key interest is in measuring the doseeresponse relationship above and below a given threshold level where we allow for a large number of potential explanatory variables to trigger the threshold effect. This is in contrast to existing approaches that usually focus on a single threshold trigger. We allow for a myriad of threshold effects within a Bayesian… CONTINUE READING
