Graph: Plot depicts variation in Cholera outbreaks compared to variation with sea surface temperature and sea surface height. Data is shown for Oct 1992-Nov 1995.
Caption: Cholera cases (solid line), SST (dashed), and SSH (dotted) data for September, 1992-1995. In 1994 and 1995, cholera cases followed the SST cycle; however, in spring, 1993, SSH was the lowest for this period.
