From: Regional-scale climate-variability synchrony of cholera epidemics in West Africa

Figure 4

Pattern of synchrony obtained from phase evolutions of (A) cholera time series between the five countries during 1975–2002 and (B) five selected rainfall time series during 1975–1996. For the left panels (A): the red dotted line is Benin, the cyan solid line is Côte d'Ivoire, the red dashed line is Ghana, the black solid line represents Nigeria, and the blue dotted line is Togo; (B): the red dotted line is Ben201, the cyan solid line is Ben270, the red dashed line is Ghan110, the black solid line represents Ghan132, the blue dotted line is Cotiv21, and the blue dotted line is Nige037. For both cholera (A) and rainfall (B), the right panels represent the distributions of phase differences between 1989 and 1994, illustrated by a black dashed square in the left panels; analyses were computed with the wavelet transform in three periodic bands: (1) 1.8–2.5 years, (2) 2–3 years, and (3) 4–5 years.
