T he Pilot Research Moored Array in the tropical At lantic (PIR ATA) was developed as a multinational observation network by Brazil, France, and the United States to improve our knowledge and understanding of ocean–atmosphere variability in the tropical Atlantic Ocean. The variability of the ocean–atmosphere system in the tropical Atlantic, from(More)
[1] Temperature, salinity, velocity, and wind from a mooring at 0 N, 23 Ware used along with satellite data for sea surface temperature and sea level to examine the contribution of tropical instability waves (TIWs) to the energy and heat balance of the equatorial Atlantic mixed layer. The TIWs appear as periodic 20–30 day fluctuations of currents,(More)
The survival rate of mosquitoes is an important topic that affects many aspects of decision-making in mosquito management. This study aims to estimate the variability in the survival rate of Ae. aegypti, and climate factors that are related to such variability. It is generally assumed that the daily probability of mosquito survival is independent of natural(More)
It is generally assumed that the daily probability of survival of mosquitoes is independent of age. To test this assumption we have conducted a three-year experimental fieldwork study (2005-2007) at Fortaleza-CE in Brazil, determining daily survival rates of the dengue vector Aedes aegypti (L.). Survival rates of adult Ae. aegypti may be age-dependent and(More)
