An Overview of Louisiana's 1991-92 Christmas Tree-Brush Fence Program
A project to alleviate coastal land loss in Louisiana through the construction of sediment-trap fencing using recycled Christmas trees is described. It has been demonstrated that Christmas...

Ecohydrological Processes in Almost Flat Wetlands
In spite of their modest relief almost flat wetlands are able to maintain definite topographically driven groundwater flow systems. Large seepage areas create ecohydrological gradients...

Coastal Erosion and Sea Level Rise: Residents' and Local Officials' Response
Recent concern about the possibility of the sea rising due to the warming of the atmosphere and the resultant melting of the polar ice caps has prompted attention to the question of how...

Assessment of Technological Approaches for Measuring Wetlands Changes
Efforts to establish causal relationships have led a number of researchers to develop techniques for assessing changes in marsh environments. Until recently these techniques for assessing...
