Figure 15

Mapped seasonal cross-correlation coefficients for malaria lagging two months behind rainfall. Mapped cross-correlation coefficients for logarithmically transformed three-monthly rainfall (differenced with the logarithmically transformed rainfall in the preceding twelve months) with logarithmically transformed three-monthly number of malaria cases (differenced with the logarithmically transformed number of malaria in the preceding twelve months), after removing first order auto correlation (see methods)), with the malaria series lagging two months behind the rainfall series, for districts in Sri Lanka. The bar on the far left represents January as the centre month of a three months rainfall period; the bar on the far right represents December. Red bars represent negative correlation, blue bars represent positive correlation.
