Abstract: Let $ G$ be a connected reductive algebraic group over an algebraically closed field of characteristic $ p>0$, $ G_{1}$ be the first Frobenius kernel, and $ G({\mathbb{F}}_{p})$ be the corresponding finite Chevalley group. Let $ M$ be a rational $ G$-module. In this paper we relate the support variety of $ M$ over the first Frobenius kernel with the support variety of $ M$ over the group algebra $ kG({\mathbb{F}}_{p})$. This provides an answer to a question of Parshall. Applications of our new techniques are presented, which allow us to extend results of Alperin-Mason and Janiszczak-Jantzen, and to calculate the dimensions of support varieties for finite Chevalley groups.
