High air temperature and high relative humidity will give high apparent temperature or indices, in which full exposure to sunshine can increase the heat index by 90 degrees Celsius," she said.
2%), and HI09 (maximum daily apparent temperature > 90th percentile for > 1 day, 2.
One of the most popular indices for environmental health research is Steadman's apparent temperature (Steadman 1979a, 1979b, 1984), a version of which provides the basis for heat advisories in many U.
10) were newborn's sex, maternal age, pregestational BMI, net weight gain, socioeconomic status, ethnicity, smoking status, parity, gestational age, season, and time-specific apparent temperature.
RESULTS: Higher apparent temperature was associated with higher levels of BNP beginning with 2-day moving averages and reached statistical significance for 3-and 4-day moving averages.
Apparent temperature was calculated on the basis of air temperature and dew-point temperature according to the following formula:
We did, however, compute apparent temperature from temperature and dew point (Steadman 1979) and included it in a separate alternative model for sensitivity analysis.
2006), apparent temperature (Smoyer 1998), or combinations of thresholds of apparent and minimum temperature (Robinson 2001; Weisskopf et al.
To control for weather, we used apparent temperature, defined as a person's perceived air temperature, which combines the effects of heat and humidity in one variable (O'Neill et al.
The index is based on a measure of apparent temperature (A) that reflects both temperature and humidity and is derived through the following equation:
After calculating 24-hr mean temperature and dew point, in the same manner as for the pollutant concentrations, we calculated 24-hr mean apparent temperature (Steadman 1979; Zanobetti and Schwartz 2005) as a measure of each patient's perceived air temperature given the humidity and used these values in all analyses.
