Spatio-Temporal Patterns of Global Population Exposure Risk of PM2.5 from 2000–2016
A high level of fine particulate matter (PM2.5) has become one of the greatest threats to human health. Based on multi-source remote sensing data, the pollutant population exposure model, accompanied
Comparison of metropolitan cities for mortality rates attributed to ambient air pollution using the AirQ model
In the present study, the air pollution dynamics of the metropolitan cities of Balıkesir, Bursa, Istanbul, Kocaeli, Sakarya and Tekirdağ in the Marmara Region, which is the geographical region with


Long-term trends and health impact of PM2.5 and O3 in Tehran, Iran, 2006-2015.
Spatial and Temporal Trends of Short-Term Health Impacts of PM2.5 in Iranian Cities; a Modelling Approach (2013-2016)
The health impacts in all cities decreased in the third year compared to the first year except for Ahvaz, Khoram Abad, and Ilam, which showed a high estimated rate of death attributed to air pollution.
Health impact assessment of air pollution in megacity of Tehran, Iran
Results indicate that the magnitude of the health impact estimated for the city of Tehran underscores the need for urgent action to reduce the health burden of air pollution.
Estimation of Gender-Specific Lung Cancer Deaths due to Exposure to PM2.5 in 10 Cities of Iran During 2013 - 2016: A Modeling Approach
The results of this study could be used by authorities for making air pollution reduction strategies and plans and any reduction in attributed mortality and hospitalization reduces financial burden in health organizations.
Model calculated global, regional and megacity premature mortality due to air pollution
Abstract. Air pollution by fine particulate matter (PM 2.5 ) and ozone (O 3 ) has increased strongly with industrialization and urbanization. We estimate the premature mortality rates and the years
Health impact and related cost of ambient air pollution in Tehran.
Mortality assessment attributed to long-term exposure to fine particles in ambient air of the megacity of Tehran, Iran
The results showed that the annual average concentration of PM2.5 in 2015–2016 was reduced by 13% compared to that in 2013–2014, and the steps that have been currently taken for reducing air pollution in Tehran should be continued to further improve the already positive effects of these measures on reducing health outcomes.
A time-stratified case-crossover study of fine particulate matter air pollution and mortality in Guangzhou, China
Regression analysis showed that ambient PM2.5 was associated with mortality from all causes and cardiorespiratory diseases, and the associations were stronger in the elderly, in females, and in those with low education level, but the differences were statistically insignificant.
