Land Surface Temperature Anomaly and Dengue Outbreaks in South East Asia Region: 2015-2016
The 2015-2016 El Niño event brought changes to weather conditions across the globe that triggered regional disease outbreaks, including mosquito-borne dengue fever in Southeast Asia. This visualization with corresponding timeplot graph reveals the relationship between land surface temperature anomaly in Southeast Asia and dengue outbreaks. Higher than normal land surface temperatures results in an increase of dengue reported locations.

Disease reports were obtained from ProMED Mail (Program for Monitoring Emerging Diseases), an online informal disease outbreak reporting systems. Disease incidents and/or outbreaks are reported by contributors/subscribers worldwide and subsequently screened, reviewed and validated by expert moderators. ProMED also includes reports from media, government and health agencies internationally.
