Our project team has developed statistically and dynamically downscaled climate models for Wisconsin. These provide climate data on a 50 km x 50 km horizontal resolution, compared to the 300 km x 300 km scale of global climate models. While the current focus of this analysis is the relationship between gastrointestinal illness and rainfall, the climate models contain other variables such as surface air temperature and humidity, which could be applied in future analyses evaluating the health impacts of heat waves. The project has also served to connect UW-Madison researchers and public health practitioners at the WI Department of Health Services (DHS). Staff on this team have become familiar with the public health data resources at DHS.
