Future ozone-related acute excess mortality under climate and population change scenarios in China: A modeling study

Fig 2

Impact of climate and emission change on ozone-related acute excess mortality.

(A) Spatial distribution of historical annual ozone-related mortality in 104 Chinese cities during 2013–2015. (B) Spatial distribution of future changes (%) in annual ozone-related mortality under the RCP4.5 scenario in 104 Chinese cities during 2053–2055 relative to the historical period 2013–2015. (C) Same as (B) but under RCP8.5. (D) Future changes (%) in ozone-related mortality by cause of death (cardiovascular, respiratory, and other causes of non-accidental deaths) under RCP4.5 and RCP8.5. RCP4.5 and RCP8.5 represent moderate and high global warming and emission scenarios, respectively.
