Abstract: The vast, diverse, and fragile coastal wetlands of Louisiana face continual problems, including flooding, shoreline erosion, land loss, destruction by hurricanes, channel dredging, dredge and spoil disposal, and hazardous waste disposal. The variety of federal projects involving these issues has required an increased effort for coordination between state and federal agencies. The Louisiana Geological Survey is also responsible for coordinating with MMS on federal leasing activities in the outer continental shelf.
