MSU Announces Awards Involving Geospatial and Natural Resources Institute 12.17.2002

Mississippi State University (MSU) announced that two individuals, one a professor and the other a graduate student, have received awards for their outstanding accomplishments in activities related to MSU’s Geospatial and Natural Resources Institute (GNRI).

The Mississippi Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station at MSU recognized Dr. K. Raja Reddy, a GNRI investigator, with the Outstanding Peer-Reviewed Publication Award for 2002. In addition, MSU selected Mr. Abhinav Mathur, a graduate student from India studying hyperspectral remote sensing, as the university’s Outstanding International Master’s Student for 2002.

Dr. Reddy’s award-winning paper, “Simulating the Impacts of Climate Change on Cotton Production in the Mississippi Delta,” appeared in volume 22 of the internationally respected journal, Climate Research. Through multi-disciplinary research, Dr. Reddy and his team of GNRI scientists addressed the effects of natural and man-made climatic changes on cotton growth and yield in Mississippi. They found that climate variations, including alterations in atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration, impacts cotton more severely in hot and dry years. Reddy’s research included recommendations for additional studies of crop breeding to develop more heat- and drought-tolerant cotton cultivars.

The Outstanding International Master’s Student Award is bestowed by MSU each year upon the Master’s level graduate student who achieves a combination of superior academic performance, exemplary leadership skills and contributions to the university and community through service activities. The 2002 recipient, Mr. Mathur, will be graduating this month with a Masters of Science in Electrical Engineering, and he will continue at MSU for his Ph.D.
