Weather-driven variation in dengue activity in Australia examined using a process-based modeling approach

Bannister-Tyrrell, Melanie; Williams, Craig; Ritchie, Scott; Rau, Gina; Lindesay, Janette; Mercer, Geoffry; Harley, David


The impact of weather variation on dengue transmission in Cairns, Australia, was determined by applying a process-based dengue simulation model (DENSiM) that incorporated local meteorologic, entomologic, and demographic data. Analysis showed that inter-annual weather variation is one of the significant determinants of dengue outbreak receptivity. Cross-correlation analyses showed that DENSiM simulated epidemics of similar relative magnitude and timing to those historically recorded in reported...[Show more]
