Project Title & Description
Projecting Pollen Allergens & Health Implications
This study will evaluate linkages between climate, pollen and respirable allergen occurrence, and respiratory health impacts. Investigators will analyze climate determinants of airborne pollen concentrations and pollen seasons using historical pollen counts, and will establish climate factors that influence the release of respirable pollen allergen through laboratory studies and ambient measurements. They will evaluate associations with health outcomes retrospectively in an ongoing study of children�s respiratory health in southern California and model future climate impacts.
