  Weather and airborne organisms. By D. E. Pedgley, (). Technical note no. , World Meteorological Organisation (WMO No. ). Pp. x + 91, × mm. Geneva: Secretariat of the World Meteorological OrganisationAuthor: A. H. Bunting.   Weather effects (temperature and relative humidity) on the transport and evaporation of airborne contaminated respiratory droplets at U wind = 15 km/h. Plane view at t = 2 s from an observer located 8 m away from the source in the direction of the by: 1.   Although challenging, weather models and future climate predictions can also become more accurate by integrating airborne bacteria and their effects. Radiative forcing, temperature and humidity can be indirectly altered by airborne bacteria, because these microorganisms can affect the amount of precipitation and cloud cover (section ). Disease severity of wheat powdery mildew, caused by Blumeria graminis f. sp. tritici, was recorded weekly in fungicide-free field plots for three successive seasons from to in Langfang City, Hebei Province, ne conidia of B. graminis f. sp. tritici were trapped using a volumetric spore sampler, and meteorological data were collected using an automatic weather station.

  Airborne microbes can move directly, from person to person through respiration, ingestion, and dermal contact or indirectly, from waste handling and loading of sewage, biosolids or animal wastes (Earth Materials and Health, pg). Also, fungal spores released by soil fungi into the wind can be a natural mechanism of transportation. Airborne particles are a major cause of respiratory ailments of humans, causing allergies, asthma, and pathogenic infections of the respiratory tract. Airborne fungal spores are also important agents of plant disease, and the means for dissemination of many common saprotrophic (saprophytic) fungi.

WEATHER is a minute television weather program designed for pilots and can be seen on more than PBS stations Monday through Friday mornings. Check your local TV listings for exact time and station. Pilots may obtain Federal pre-flight weather. It is not often one comes across a book of this nature, combining authoritative information on weather causes and changes (the author is a meteorologist with the Centre for Overseas Pest Research (COPR), London) and their association with the dispersion of such things as pathogens, spores, pollen, seeds and insects. The effect of the weather is considered in relation to take-off, staying.
