Amadou Dieye awarded NASA Fellowship

Amadou Dieye (advisor Dr. David Roy) has been awarded a NASA Earth and Space Science Ph.D. Fellowship (NESSF) starting 2007/2008 for a proposal titled, "Land Cover Land Use Change and Soil Organic Carbon Under Climate Variability in Semi-Arid to Sub-Humid West African Sahel (1975-2050)".

Amadou is included in 58 NASA selected graduate students nationwide. The purpose of the NASA fellowship is to ensure continued training of interdisciplinary scientists to support the study of the Earth as a system. The applications were evaluated through a two-step process: first through mail review, and then by a panel composed of members of academic institutions and research organizations as well as program managers in Earth Science at NASA Headquarters.
