Project Description

The Louisiana Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA) has received a $19.5 million grant from the Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council (RESTORE Council) for design and implementation of the final phase of the System Wide Assessment and Monitoring Program (SWAMP) under CPRA’s Adaptive Management program. CPRA has developed SWAMP as a long-term monitoring program to ensure a comprehensive network of coastal data collection activities are in place to support the development, implementation, and adaptive management of the coastal protection and restoration program within coastal Louisiana, in addition to monitoring the recovery of coastal resources from the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill. The Coastwide Reference Monitoring System (CRMS) and Barrier Island Comprehensive Monitoring (BICM) programs have been incorporated into SWAMP, while other aspects of system dynamics, including sedimentological, geological, geophysical, water quality, vegetative biomass, waves, currents, weather, and climate data, some of which have not traditionally been a part of CPRAAs monitoring strategy, have been designed into SWAMP to fill critical data gaps.
