Scientists from the University of Minnesota claim that the extreme cold from the polar vortex (1/1/2014-1/9/2014) may delay spread of EAB and cause high levels of mortality

  • Predictions
  • 0°F: 5% Mortality
  • -10°F: 34% Mortality
  • -20°F: 79% Mortality
  • -30°F: 98% Mortality
data collection
Data Collection
  • Selected 8 states with high risk and within the polar vortex zone
  • Estimated EAB spread from 2006-2014
  • Estimated EAB Risk
  • Selected 91 dispersed counties to gather minimum temperatures for
  • Interpolate weather data
  • Convert minimum temperatures into % mortality
conclusions
Conclusions
  • Areas where greatest dieback would have occurred mostly don’t have known, established EAB populations
  • Most likely had some positive impact
  • Southern WI may experience greatest benefit
