Geographers and COP26 – looking back and forward?

By Alex Jackman and Liz Fox-Tucker, Royal Geographical Society (with the Institute of British Geographers) Geographers are central to tackling climate change. At COP26 last year – and at many related events – geographers were able to share their expertise and insights on climate change and the action necessary to limit it. The RGS-IBG have been advising, facilitating and promoting these geographical contributions widely over the last year in both the professional and academic communities. Here we highlight a small fraction of the research, reporting, public engagement, advocacy and impact that geographers are achieving around climate change and offer some suggestions as to what might come next.

Spatial correlations in geographical spreading of COVID-19 in the United States

The global spread of the COVID-19 pandemic has followed complex pathways, largely attributed to the high virus infectivity, human travel patterns, and the implementation of multiple mitigation measures. The resulting geographic patterns describe the evolution of the epidemic and can indicate areas that are at risk of an outbreak. Here, we analyze the spatial correlations of new active cases in the USA at the county level and characterize the extent of these correlations at different times. We show that the epidemic did not progress uniformly and we identify various stages which are distinguished by significant differences in the correlation length. Our results indicate that the correlation length may be large even during periods when the number of cases declines. We find that correlations between urban centers were much more significant than between rural areas and this finding indicates that long-range spreading was mainly facilitated by travel between cities, especially at the first months of the epidemic. We also show the existence of a percolation transition in November 2020, when the largest part of the country was connected to a spanning cluster, and a smaller-scale transition in January 2021, with both times corresponding to the peak of the epidemic in the country.
