Project Description

The goal of this proposal is to continue the Louisiana State Universlity (LSU) research projects funded by the Northern Gulf Institute (NGI) that focus on the coastal environments of Louisiana. These projects began as the Shell/LSU Breton Sound Ecosystem Project, which was designed to study two different hydrologic basins including Breton Sound (impacted by the Caernarvon Diversion) and Barataria Bay (impacted by the Davis Pond Diversion).
