Resumen en español En respuesta a los intereses del PNUMA y la OPS, se hace necesario incorporar el componente salud dentro de las prioridades del proyecto GEO, que hasta el momento solo ha logrado representar el comportamiento de los problemas ambientales a nivel mundial y regional. Con el objetivo de analizar los indicadores de salud y ambiente disponibles, se obtuvo la información de datos primarios por infecciones respiratorias agudas (IRA) y crisis agudas de asma bronquial (CAAB). Se (mas) describieron los indicadores de calidad del aire para establecer relaciones geográficas entre ellos a través de la representación de su comportamiento en un sistema de información geográfico (SIG). Solo se representaron los efectos en salud; las partículas excedieron las medias mensuales y fueron las que mayor porcentaje de trasgresión mostraron, así como se observó un incremento en el número de casos de infecciones respiratorias y crisis de asma bronquial a medida que se potenció la contaminación atmosférica. Resumen en inglés To give an answer to the interests of the UNEP and the PHO, it is necessary to incorporate the health component into the priorities of the GRO project, which has only been able to representate the behavior of the environmental problems at the world and regional level up to now. In order to analyze the available health and environmental indicators, the information about the primary data by acute respiratory infections (ARI) and bronchial asthma acute crises (BAAC) was obta (mas) ined. The quality indicators of the air were described to establish geographic relations among them through the representation of their behavior in a geographic information system (GIS). Only the effects on health were shown. The particles exceeded the monthly means and showed the highest precentage of transgression. It was also observed an increase in the number of cases with respiratory infections and bronchial asthma crises as the atmospheric pollution was potentiated.

Environmental Assessment of Brine Discharge Including Wastewater Collection in the Arabian Gulf

Bashitialshaaer, Raed; Flyborg, Lena; Persson, Kenneth M

The environmental effects of brine discharge in the Arabian/Persian Gulf have been assessed. The Arabic Gulf is a wide and shallow system having a horizontal shear dominance. The management choice of mixing brine with wastewater to reduce the salt content in the discharge has also been considered. A...
