A view from above: use of satellite imagery to enhance our understanding of potential impacts of climate change on human health in the Arctic / Nancy G. Maynard, George A. Conway.

Title: A view from above: use of satellite imagery to enhance our understanding of potential impacts of climate change on human health in the Arctic / Nancy G. Maynard, George A. Conway.
Author(s): Maynard, Nancy G.
Conway, George A.
Date: 2006.
In: Alaska Medicine. (2006.), Supplement (2006)
Abstract: Provides overview and examples of remote sensing technologies presently or potentially available to address environmental health problems in Arctic. Vulnerability of Arctic populations to health impacts from environmental, weather and climate-related factors underscores need for increased applications of technologies such as remote sensing, geographical information systems (GIS) and global positioning systems (GPS) to enable local health and environmental professionals to predict problems and take preventative action.
