Female Vietnamese doctor receives international award.

She and her colleagues received the prestigious award of PEPS for an article entitled “soil salinity assessment by using near-infrared channel and vegetation soil salinity index derived from Landsat & OLI data: a case study in the Tra Vinh Province, Mekong Delta, Vietnam.”

The study proposes a method that estimates soil salinity using satellite-derived variables, which can be applied with low cost and considerable accuracy.

The outcomes of this study are useful for agricultural activities, planners, and farmers by mapping the soil salinity contamination for better selection of crop types to reduce economic loss in the context of climate change.

She said that the research idea stems from the increasingly complex situation of saltwater intrusion in the Mekong Delta, which seriously affects farmers' lives and agricultural development strategies in the largest rice bowl of Vietnam. Therefore, she wanted to contribute to monitoring and assessing the situation as well as forecasting salinity levels regularly so that managers can take timely responses.

PEPS is a prestigious Japanese journal with a high Impact Factor, which often publishes specialised research works with practical applications.

The “Most downloaded paper award” is presented annually to individuals and groups of authors with valuable research works, reviewed based on the quality of the articles as well as the number of followers and downloads.

In addition to the above-mentioned article, Dr. Kim Anh also has 12 scientific articles published in reputable foreign scientific journals in the list of International Scientific Indexing (ISI).

She has also been chosen to be the communications ambassador for the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS), in charge of the Asia-Pacific region.
