Patrick will provide updates of some current heat-related studies he has conducted during his PhD  candidature in SPH, UQ. These will include:(1) the effects of diurnal temperature range on mortality and emergency presentations in Victoria State of Australia, (2) temporal changes in temperature-related mortality in relation to the establishment of the heat-health alert system in Victoria, and (3) the spatiotemporal evaluation of human heat-health vulnerability in Australia (preliminary results of my PhD project).
