The International Society of Biometeorology (ISB) has covered significant breadth and depth addressing fundamental and applied societal and environmental challenges in the last 60 years. Biometeorology is an interdisciplinary science connecting living organisms to their environment, but there is very little understanding of the existence and placement of this discipline within formal educational systems and institutions. It is thus difficult to project the ability of members of the… 
Short communication: trends in biometeorology publishing: a case study of climate and Human Health Commission members
This study compiles the most popular journals where members of the International Society of Biometeorology’s (ISB) Climate and Human Health Commission (CHH) members publish, journals with a general focus on fields such as climate, the environment, and health stand out.

This issue presents the third Special Issue by the SNP, where 15 articles are advancing the way in which the authors think about, approach, and study Biometeorology across multiple domains and two predominant themes are presented: urban heat variability and thermal comfort and the impacts of weather on animals.
A news update from the students and new professionals group
The SNP as a group has made considerable progress given that the group has only been established for the last 12 years, and is particularly evident given the development of International Workshops and the publication of two SNP special issues within the authors' journal.
Analysing Historical and Modelling Future Soil Temperature at Kuujjuaq, Quebec (Canada): Implications on Aviation Infrastructure
The impact of climate change on soil temperatures at Kuujjuaq, Quebec in northern Canada is assessed. First, long-term historical soil temperature records (1967–1995) are statistically analyzed to

The methods of modern human biometeorology increasingly are acknowledged by workers in disciplines of potential application, such as urban or regional planners or air conditioning engineers.
Changing Discourses in Climate Health: An Anti-disciplinary Perspective
While worldwide collaboration is needed to address global issues, it is felt the discussion surrounding climate-health requires a shift in discourse and disciplines must begin to use their disciplines not as fragmented silos of discovery but as interrelated, interdependent, and big picture oriented.
Enhancing and promoting interdisciplinarity in higher education
Interdisciplinarity represents an effort to achieve integrative knowledge in an age of increasing academic specialization. It is an intrinsic feature of the environmental sciences and the emerging
Perspectives on the Synoptic Climate Classification and its Role in Interdisciplinary Research
Synoptic climatology has a long history of research where weather data are aggregated and composited to gain a better understanding of atmospheric effects on non-atmospheric variables. This has
Multidisciplinarity, interdisciplinarity and transdisciplinarity in health research, services, education and policy: 1. Definitions, objectives, and evidence of effectiveness.
The definitions, objectives, and evidence of effectiveness of multiple disciplinary teamwork are discussed, and the three terms refer to the involvement of multiple disciplines to varying degrees on the same continuum.
