Comment on "Using Satellite-Based Spatiotemporal Resolved Air Temperature Exposure to Study the Association between Ambient Air Temperature and Birth Outcomes in Massachusetts"
Environ Health Perspect. 2015 Oct;123(10):A251.
In a recently published paper using space-time satellite data to determine air temperature (Ta), Kloog et al. concluded that Ta during pregnancy was associated with lower birth weight and shorter gestational age in the study population. The results obtained pointed to associations between Ta and birth weight during the last trimester, and between Ta and preterm delivery and low birth weight during the entire pregnancy. These results agree with those obtained by Dadvand et al. (2014), indicating Ta has a stressful role influencing low birth weight.
