Ambient air pollution is hazardous to fetus even in countries with relatively low pollution level. In this paper, I examine the effects of ambient air pollution on birth outcomes in Norway. I find that conditional the same sub-postcode and calendar month fixed effects, prenatal exposure to ambient nitric oxide in the last trimester causes significant birth-weight and birth-length losses, whereas other ambient air pollutants such as nitrogen dioxide and sulfur dioxide appear to be at a safe level… 



Birth Outcomes and Prenatal Exposure to Ozone, Carbon Monoxide, and Particulate Matter: Results from the Children’s Health Study

O3 Exposure during the second and third trimesters and CO exposure during the first trimester were associated with reduced birth weight, and first-trimester CO and third- Trimester O3 exposures were associatedwith 20% increased risk of intrauterine growth retardation.

Association between air pollution and low birth weight: a community-based study.

The data suggests that TSP and SO2, or a more complex pollution mixture associated with these pollutants, contribute to an excess risk of low birth weight in the Beijing population.

Intercomparison of NOx, SO2, O3, and Aromatic Hydrocarbons Measured by a Commercial DOAS System and Traditional Point Monitoring Techniques

A field-based intercomparison study of a commercial Differential Optical Absorption Spectroscopy (DOAS) instrument (OPSIS AB, Sweden) and different point-sample monitoring techniques (PM, based on an

The Association of Indicators of Fetal Growth with Visual Acuity and Hearing among Conscripts

A birth weight of less than 3,000 gm and a body mass index at birth of more than 3.4 were associated with reduced visual acuity and impaired hearing, which could be due to fetal brain programming or due to confounding, by early birth trauma or other factors.

Associations of Meteorology with Adverse Pregnancy Outcomes: A Systematic Review of Preeclampsia, Preterm Birth and Birth Weight

This article reviews available evidence on the relationships between seasonality or meteorology and three major pregnancy outcomes: the hypertensive disorders of pregnancy (including preeclampsia, eClampsia and gestational hypertension), gestational length and birth weight.

Evaluation of Interpolation Technique for Air Quality Parameters in Port Blair , India

Evaluation of interpolation technique was investigated for air quality parameters such as suspended particulate matter (SPM), sulphur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) in ambient air of Port

Climatology of High-Latitude Air Pollution as Illustrated by Fairbanks and Anchorage, Alaska

Abstract High latitude communities frequently have severe air pollution problems. The usual situation is the release of moderate amounts of pollutants into an atmosphere with extremely poor
