Main Article


Video. Seasonal spatiotemporal dynamics of Ebola virus spillover intensity (i.e., average density or expected number of points per unit area and month) as percentile values ranking predicted intensities at all grid cell locations within the region of Africa where annual rainfall was >500 mm for all months from January 1983 through December 2014. Lines at top and right depict the marginal intensity by month to indicate where (latitudinally and longitudinally) intensity is most dynamic. Dotted horizontal line marks the equator. (Source)
