Exploring the Influence of Daily Climate Variables on Malaria Transmission and Abundance of Anopheles arabiensis over Nkomazi Local Municipality, Mpumalanga Province, South Africa

Figure 5

Cross-correlation and time lag of climate variables and malaria cases showing the lag and correlation coefficients between (a) daily temperature, (b) rainfall, (c) relative humidity, and (d) simulated population of An. arabiensis and malaria cases of Nkomazi Municipality, Mpumalanga Province, South Africa, from January 1997 to December 2015. Temp_Lag, Rain_Lag, RH_Lag, and Mosq_Lag, respectively, indicate the time lag between the daily temperature, rainfall, relative humidity, and simulated mosquito population and malaria cases, while Temp_Corr, Rain_Corr, RH_Corr, and Mosq_Corr, respectively, represent the correlation between the daily temperature, rainfall, relative humidity, and simulated mosquito population and malaria cases.
