Comte Gilbert Joseph Gaspard de Chabrol de Volvic (1773 - 1843) was a French official. Graduating from an École Polytechnique in 1794, he was named prefect of the Seine (and thus Prefect of Paris) by Napoleon in 1812, an office he held until 1833. He is to be credited with paving several of Paris's streets and boulevards, the creation of pavements, and the gradual conversion of city lighting to gaslight. He also created and financed the École d'Architecture et de Sculpture de Volvic. This work is attributed to Jean Baptiste Joseph Fourier (1768 - 1830) a French mathematician and physicist best known for initiating the investigation of Fourier series and their applications to problems of heat transfer and vibrations. The Fourier transform and Fourier's Law are also named in his honour. Fourier is also generally credited with the discovery of the greenhouse effect.
