We are working with the National Academies of Science, Ducks Unlimited, and Conoco Phillips to design marsh terrace sites throughout coastal Louisiana. The ultimate goal of the research is to develop best practices for design, engineering and construction of marsh terraces to help promote sustainable and productive ecosystems across the entire Gulf Coast region.
Here is a video clip from Momentum, the Mississippi State University News Station, on my lab’s research.
