OBJECTIVES To determine whether the effect of black smoke on cardiorespiratory mortality is modified by cold temperatures. METHODS Poisson regression models were used to investigate the relationship between lagged black smoke concentration and daily mortality, and whether the effect of black smoke on mortality was modified by cold temperature for three Scottish cities from January 1981 to December 2001.
