Exploratory Analysis of Dengue Fever Niche Variables within the Río Magdalena Watershed

Abstract: Previous research on Dengue Fever have involved laboratory tests or study areas with less diverse temperature and elevation ranges than is found in Colombia; therefore, preliminary research was needed to identify location specific attributes of Dengue Fever transmission. Environmental variables derived from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) and Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) satellites were combined with population variables to be statistically compared against reported case… Show more

“…The Poisson models consistently showed daytime LST to be highly determinant variables, which is also in line with other literature that model mosquito habitat and in particular temperature in relation to disease [40,45,46]. Daytime LST appear to be a more important limiting factor as compared with nighttime LST, probably because the highest temperatures reached in many areas of this tropical site can easily exceed the upper limit of the comfort window for Ae.…”

“…Accordingly, it has been suggested that the strong dependency of this mosquito on water containers filled by humans, makes it less susceptible to rain variability [19]. This may also explain why Stanforth et al [46] found a negative association between the minimum annual precipitation and dengue incidence. Suggesting people may be more likely to store water during a dry season, providing more opportunities for larval rearing while on the contrary the faster surface water flow during the rainy season may not allow time for larval development [47].…”

“…Malaria is one of the most common vector-borne diseases in the world, with an estimated 214 million new cases and 438,000 deaths in 2015 [3], and therefore is one of the most studied diseases from the remote sensing point of view (e.g., [4,5]). For some infectious diseases of major public health importance (e.g., Dengue fever) and other highly pathogenic or emerging infectious diseases (e.g., Ebola fever), remote sensing has become in recent years a very powerful instrument [6,7]. Also, an extensive use of remote sensing data is recorded in the study of neglected tropical diseases [8].…”
