Earth and Environmental Sciences Professor Mark Kulp’s Research Aids Louisiana’s Coastal Restoration Plan

May 2, 2022

Kulp, whose research emphasis is on the sedimentary framework of the Mississippi River delta system and evolution of the Louisiana coastal plain in response to changes in sediment supply, sea-level rise and subsidence, has been awarded a $118,697 grant from The Water Institute of the Gulf to contribute to a state sediment database. The sediment database is part of the Louisiana Sediment Management Plan created to help reach goals included in the state’s master plan to combat coastal erosion. More here.
