Maroon Research TV Tours MSU Science and Technology Center
November 28, 2012
The Mississippi State University Science and Technology Center which is home to the Northern Gulf Institute and researchers from MSU's Geosystems Research Institute was recently featured on an edition of Maroon Research TV. The research facility, which is located at Stennis Space Center, held its grand opening in October and was funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
NOAA's National Coastal Data Development Center and an Engineering Branch of NOAA's National Marine Fisheries Service are also located at the facility.
Science and technology conducted at the center focuses on critical processes in the northern Gulf of Mexico including measurement and monitoring, physical and biological assessments, and impacts on the social and economics of coastal communities. Additional capabilities exist to evaluate watershed processes, hazards such as floods and storm surges, and impacts on food production associated with harmful fungi.
