Table 2. Parameter names, values, and total number of values used to create the 96 different model parameterizations (Morin et al. 2015).
Parameter name (units) Values No. of values
aHabitat area refers to the surface area of water containers (filled either manually or by precipitation).
bContainer height refers to the maximum height of water in a container before additional precipitation will cause spillover.
cMaximum mammal transmission probability refers to the highest probability of transmission of the virus from mosquito to human during a blood meal dependent on temperature.
