Considerations and Challenges for Planning a Public Health Approach to Asthma

0

A recent paper published in the Journal of Urban Health explores the public health approach to asthma, “Addressing asthma from a public health perspective is a relatively new concept for which the literature provides little guidance. A public health approach seeks to decrease the burden of asthma and improve health outcomes at the population level, such as communities, cities, or states, by reaching large numbers of individuals with effective interventions and at reasonable cost.

Northeast Atlantic mode waters (NEAMW) are formed by subduction in a region known to be a strong sink of atmospheric CO2. This study investigates the biological and physical carbon pumps involved in this sink. For that purpose, we estimate the annual transfer of carbon, nitrogen, and oxygen from the surface into the ocean interior through NEAMW subduction. Our estimates are based on a model simulation constrained with data collected during the Programme Océan Multidisciplinaire Méso Echelle (POMME).
