Louisiana Coastal Neotectonics and Subsidence Expert Panel

May 30, 2020


NEW ORLEANS, La. (May 20, 2020) – The Water Institute of the Gulf has assembled an expert panel composed of recognized experts in the fields of neotectonics/subsidence and geomorphic/sedimentary response in the Louisiana coastal region. The panel is charged with weighing the data, interpretations and conclusions presented to them by scientists conducting research related to this topic during the workshop in the context of fostering open discussion of neotectonics and coastal restoration at the planning time scale. The panel will provide a forum for the discussion of neotectonics and its potential impacts on management of coastal natural resources. This is the third of three planned workshops.

Due to COVID-19 disruptions to in-person meetings, the third workshop will be held virtually over the course of three days. Local experts from Louisiana State University (Frank Tsai), the U.S. Geological Survey (Julie Bernier) and Tulane University (Simone Fiaschi) will present to the panel at the workshop.

June 3, 3-5 p.m.– Dr. Frank Tsai, Louisiana State University
June 4, 3-5 p.m. – Dr. Julie Bernier, U.S. Geological Survey
