Matrix for weather phenomena and health restrictions.

October 1st 2012 until June 30th 2014

Executive summary

The project focused on the development of a pollen forecast system – and so-called secondary weather effects. Based on the current pollen concentration in one place, forecasts for the distribution of pollen over the days ahead were generated, taking predicted weather conditions into account. Based on current and historical pollen and weather observation data, the prepared models were then validated and further developed. The aim of the research project was to inform people of weather developments in a timely manner, which enabled them to prevent weather-related health problems. Together with physicians and palynologists of the University of Vienna, UBIMET examined the connections between weather phenomena and health problems.
