Post-hurricane Analysis of Citrus Canker Spread and Progress towards the Development of a Predictive Model to Estimate Disease Spread Due to Catastrophic Weather Events

Fig. 9. WRIV for the Lee/Charlotte County area using w = 8 m/s (17.9 mph) and r = 0.318 cm/h (0.125 inch/h) as thresholds to calculate Iwr. Individual WRIV were extended 50 km (35 mi) in each "blowing to" direction. Percent capture of infected trees by WRIV = 86.3%.
