Modelling the effects of past and future climate on the risk of bluetongue emergence in Europe
Vector-borne diseases are among those most sensitive to climate because the ecology of vectors and the development rate of pathogens within them are highly dependent on environmental conditions.Expand

Estimating surface air temperatures, from Meteosat land surface temperatures, using an empirical solar zenith angle model
Temperature values derived from Meteosat are an indication of emitted long-wave radiation, and are not a true indication of ambient air temperature. The authors believe that Solar Zenith Angle (SZA)Expand
