Marsh creation projects are prioritized in the 2017 and 2023 Coastal Master Plans for Louisiana. The proposed study aims at addressing knowledge gaps in the design and construction practice of marsh creation projects by using integrated field data collection, laboratory experimentation, and numerical modeling to better understand consolidation and transport properties of the dredge material.
