The Vibrio viewer is a real-time model that uses daily updated remote sensing data to examine
worldwide environmental suitable conditions such as sea surface temperature and salinity for
spp. according to Baker-Austin et al. (Nature Climate Change 3, 73–77, 2013
Infections caused by Vibrio species other than V. cholerae
can also be serious notably for immunocompromised persons,
but the overall occurrence is low despites an increase having been recently observed in Northern Europe.
Note that only imported case of acute Vibrio cholerae infections are notified in EU. Further work
is on-going to improve this environmental suitability model in collaboration with
University of Bath
University of Santiago de Compostela
information in the model summary
Early information about the environmental suitability will be of public health interest to assess the
geographic extent of potential human exposure. Please note that this model has been calibrated
to the Baltic Region in Northern Europe and might not apply to other worldwide settings prior to validation.
For the Baltic Sea, the model parameters are optimized for the following values:
colour palette (boxfill/vibrio), number colour bands (10) ,
scale method (linear), legend range Min. value (0), and Max. value (28).
