End date
2011
Objective
Use remotely sensed satellite data to develop an early warning system to detect elevated populations of potential vectors of Rift Valley fever (RVF) and other mosquito-borne emerging virus threat in the United States. The primary objective is early detection of environmental conditions which could precipitate a mosquito transmitted arbovirus, providing decision support for Agricultural and Public Health officials to implement improved agricultural and medical planning for potential containment and control operations.
