Article
Full-text available
The bidirectional interaction between undernutrition and infection can be devastating to child health. Nutritional deficiencies impair immunity and increase susceptibility to infection. Simultaneously, infections compound undernutrition by increasing metabolic demand and impairing nutrient absorption. Treatment of acute malnutrition (wasting) can r...
Article
Full-text available
Culex quinquefasciatus is the main vector of West Nile Virus (WNV) in the southeast USA, and inter-annual variation in this vector abundance is mainly related to meteorological variability. In this study, short-term effects of meteorological conditions on seasonal variation in the vector abundance in the central north part of the State of Georgia,...

Article

Introduction: Adolescent pregnancy is a known health risk to mother and child. Statements and reports of health outcomes typically group mothers under 20 years old together. Few studies examined this risk at a finer age resolution, none of them comprehensively, and with differing results. Methods: We analysed Demographic and Health Surveys data...
Article
Full-text available
Background Half of global child deaths occur in sub-Saharan Africa. Understanding child mortality patterns and risk factors will help inform interventions to reduce this heavy toll. The Nanoro Health and Demographic Surveillance System (HDSS), Burkina Faso was described previously, but patterns and potential drivers of heterogeneity in child mortal...

Background The World Health Organization (WHO) has highlighted the health risks to adolescent mothers and their children. Statements and reports typically group all mothers aged under 20 together. Some studies have examined the risk variations within this age group, and several child health outcomes have yet to be examined. Methods We analyzed data...
Article
Full-text available
The first case of COVID-19 in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) was reported by Nigeria on February 27, 2020. Whereas case counts in the entire region remain considerably less than those being reported by individual countries in Europe, Asia, and the Americas, variation in preparedness and response capacity as well as in data availability has raised concern...
Article
Full-text available
Background: Absolute numbers of COVID-19 cases and deaths reported to date in the sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) region have been significantly lower than those across the Americas, Asia, and Europe. As a result, there has been limited information about the demographic and clinical characteristics of deceased cases in the region, as well as the impacts...

Article
Efficient and accurate prediction of river water quality is challenging due to the complex hydrological and environmental processes affecting their nature. The challenge is even bigger in unmonitored watersheds. Both process- and data-based approaches are utilized for this purpose, with each having its own strengths and weaknesses. The development...

Background: The first case of COVID-19 in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) was reported by Nigeria on February 27, 2020. While case counts in the entire region remain considerably less than those being reported by individual countries in Europe, Asia, and the Americas, SSA countries remain vulnerable to significant COVID morbidity and mortality due to syst...

Full-text available
Measles, an acute viral disease, continues to be an important cause of childhood mortality worldwide. Infection with the measles virus is thought to be associated with a transient but profound period of immune suppression. Recently, it has been claimed that measles-induced immune manipulation lasts for about 30 months and results in increased susce...
Article
Full-text available
Understanding the determinants of polio transmission and its large-scale epidemiology remains a public health priority. Despite a 99% reduction in annual wild poliovirus (WPV) cases since 1988, tackling the last 1% has proven difficult. We identified key covariates of geographical variation in polio transmission patterns by relating country-specifi...
Article
Full-text available
The integrated effects of the many risk factors associated with West Nile virus (WNV) incidence are complex and not well understood. We studied an array of risk factors in and around Atlanta, GA, that have been shown to be linked with WNV in other locations. This array was comprehensive and included climate and meteorological metrics, vegetation ch...
Article
Full-text available
This paper explored the linkage between historic, current and future land use/land cover (LULC) conditions and peak flow and runoff volumes in a coastal community in Alabama in an effort to identify critical areas for downstream flooding. The study demonstrated that critical areas cannot be determined intuitively without conducting modeling studies...
Article
Full-text available
To improve daily flow prediction in unmonitored watersheds a hybrid model was developed by combining a quasi‐distributed watershed model and artificial neural network (ANN). Daily streamflow data from 29 nearby watersheds in and around the city of Atlanta, Southeastern United States, with leave-one-site-out jackknifing technique were used to build...
Article
Full-text available
Population growth and urbanization have increased the potential habitats, and consequently the abundance of Culex quinquefasciatus, the southern house mosquito, a vector of West Nile Virus in urban areas. Water quality is critical in larval habitat distribution and in providing microbial food resources for larvae. A mesocosm experiment was designed...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Culex quinquefasciatus, the southern house mosquito, is widely distributed in the southeast United States and has increased the West Nile Virus positive mosquito pools. Especially Georgia and Atlanta area, has been a hotspot of WNV incidence in 2012 with 117 WNV human cases, 6 deaths and 125 WNV positive mosquitos reported by Georgia Department of...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The southeastern United States has experienced substantial land use/cover (LULC) changes over the past 200 years with the following LULC transition:forest to agriculture to forest to urban. Currently, the southeastern United States has the highest population growth and urbanization rates in the United States, and this trend is expected to continue....
Conference Paper
More than 35,000 West Nile Virus (WNV) disease cases have been reported to CDC since 1999 in the United States. Just recently in 2012, 48 states have reported WNV infections in people, birds, or mosquitoes to CDC. Georgia, specifically Atlanta area, has been a hotspot of WNV incidence in 2012 with 78 WNV human cases, 6 deaths and 113 WNV positive m...
Conference Paper
Background/Question/Methods West Nile virus (WNV), the most widespread arboviral pathogen in the US, is associated with urban environments in the South-Eastern US. Potential drivers of this association (land-use land-cover, socio-economic characteristics, and larval habitat availability and quality) vary across the rural-urban gradient, as well a...

The initial abstraction ratio (λ) used in the SCS-CN method plays an important role in calculation of runoff volume and consequently hydrograph peak. The recommended value for λ in the SCS handbook is 0.2. However, recent studies suggest that λ varies between 0.05 and 0.2, closer to the lower bound. Yet, the SCS recommended value of 0.2 is still be...
Article
Full-text available
In this study, an approach is presented for handling hydraulic uncertainties in the prediction of floodplain. Different factors affect river flood characteristics. Furthermore, the high changeability of flooding conditions leads to high variability of the inundation. River morphology is one of the most effective factors in river flood characteristi...

Monsoon, one of the most dynamic climate systems, controls rainfall variation in some countries in Asia such as India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Iran. It delivers the main component of annual rainfall in these regions. In this study, the relationship between Iran monsoon rainfalls and some large scale climate signals such as SLP (Sea Level Pressure...

Flood is a natural event which depends on numerous parameters, and affects floodplain land use planning based on an acceptable level of risk. In order to predict the extent of the floodplain, it is necessary to consider flood characteristics including flood return periods. One of the most important parameters in floodplain studies is how to deal wi...
