The coastal wetlands of Louisiana are among the Nation’s most productive and important natural assets in terms of habitat, wildlife diversity, storm protection, port commerce, and oil and natural gas production. In the 2004 Lousiana Coastal Area (LCA) planning document, provision was made to initiate a LCA Science and Technology Office in order to address many of the scientific uncertainties that needed to be resolved prior to construction of large restoration efforts. This effort was authorized as a cost shared effort between the US Army Corps of Engineers and the State of Louisiana in the 2007 Water Resources Development Act. The cooperative program was conducted for three years, until the cost-sharing partner decided to follow an alternate path. This website serves as an archive of the more that 30 projects, 50 publications, and numerous Science Board deliberations that were completed during the program life.
