The goal of this project is to have an image of thermal water pollution. Yesterday, myself and Jeff hooked up a laptop to a thermal camera- connected them both to my car's cigarette lighter- and went for a drive. You can see the results with some of the pictures here.

Next- we may try to get this whole hook-up (which compacts nicely into that orange suitcase) onto a plane.
