Figure 2 illustrates the range of the UTCI classes (-29[degrees] to 40[degrees]C) on the basis of 4 years of observations (September 2011-September 2015) covering typical winter and summer weather conditions at the Veenkampen weather station in Wageningen, Netherlands (www.
Already-subtle differences in shaded versus sunlit sides of a street can shift thermal stress levels by one class on the UTCI scale (Weihs et al.
Measurement surveys using a meteorological-station-equipped bicycle revealed that the forecast of the UTCI is within the spatial range of the UTCI measurements around that forecast location (Heusinkveld et al.
In the Netherlands, only seven UTCI classes have been observed, and the extremes represent a very low frequency (Table 1).
Based on the DLNM analyses, we evaluated average values of daily mean UTCI on the same day and previous 2 days (lag 0-2), and quantified the estimated heat effects by modeling UTCI as a segmented linear variable using either the 95th or 99th percentile of the UTCI in the entire study area during 1998-2008 as the threshold (19.
k] represents model coefficients for the k distance to coast indicator variables (k = 1, 2); and [beta]1, [beta]2, and [beta]3 represent model coefficients for NDVI and UTCI; [delta] indicates the breakpoint equivalent temperature, in our case the 95th and 99th UTCI percentile.
The results demonstrate higher mortality with higher UTCI and shorter lag periods.
The association between mortality among those > 65 years of age and a 1[degrees]C increase in UTCI above the 95th percentile (19.

Using 3Com's SuperStack(R) 3 NBX(R) Networked Telephony Solution in its two greater Memphis cancer centers and NBX 100 chassis in its nine outlying clinics, UTCI is streamlining its communications.
The 3Com system's support for virtual tie lines allows UTCI staff to enjoy fast four-digit dialing, boosting patient care and research collaboration among its sites and saving considerable long-distance charges.
UTCI uses the NBX system's voicemail for simple paging and off-site notifications, ensuring that urgent patient calls are always answered promptly.
