Buruli Ulcer (BU) is an endemic prevalent disease in Ghana and other West African countries including; Cote dIvoire, Benin and Togo. Despite recent upsurge of research in Buruli Ulcer, the natural reservoir and mode of transmission of Mycobacterium ulcerans (MU) have not yet been determined. However, all major foci are found in wetlands of tropical and subtropical countries. In this study, a landscape spatial hydrological modeling approach based on Potential Maximum Soil Water Retention (PMSWR… Expand
