  • Bibliographic description in the original language Perevedentsev Yu.P., Malkhazova S.M., Auhadeev T.R., Shantalinsky K.M. Medical and demographic consequences of climate change and assessment of comfort level of weather-climatic conditions in the Volga Federal District // Journal “Geography, Environment and Sustainability”. – 2016. - № 4. – pp. 63-76.
    Annotation The paper provides a brief analysis of research on the impact of global climate change on human health. Using Tatarstan as an example, the paper discusses medical and demographic consequences of the extreme heat wave of the summer of 2010. Assessment of the Volga Federal District (VFD) bioclimate conducted with the help of certain biometeorological parameters allowed evaluating modern global and regional changes of weather-climatic conditions. The main emphasis was placed on spatial and temporal analysis of both the integral pathogenicity index (I) and its individual components for the district territory. In VFD, aggravating weather conditions increase from southwest to northeast. Summer months are associated with comfort weather conditions. In winter, the air temperature pathogenicity index and interdiurnal temperature fluctuations contribute the greatest to I.
    Keywords climate change, population mortality, biometeorological indices, bioclimatic comfort level.
