A
Google street-view car, equipped with state of the art methane and meterological sensors, will be driven repeatedly along streets with natural gas pipelines, subsequently mapping the results. They will mapping in Burlington during the next month or so.

Steve Hamburg, Chief Scientist for the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF), will bring the Google car and methane sensor to the Aiken Solarium for a presentation, discussion, and hands-on viewing of the Google car and methane sensor technology.

Emerging mosquito-borne viral diseases, such as dengue fever and chikungunya, present a major global health threat. To improve the ability of the public health sector to predict and prevent epidemics, researchers are developing early warning systems that integrate seasonal climate forecasts with local epidemiological information. I will present research findings and lessons learned from our ongoing dengue surveillance study in Machala, Ecuador, where we are forming a US-Ecuador consortium to investigate climate and water-sensitive infectious diseases and develop early warning systems.

Gund Teas are a weekly event at the Gund Institute. Each week there is a presenter(s) that will present on their research for 30 minutes, with the remainder of the time open for discussion amongst the group. Open to the public.
