BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
LSU has been awarded a $1.5 million grant to study whether coastal Louisiana has become too expensive to maintain.
The research project will investigate the sustainability of coastal communities that are vulnerable to land loss, sea-level rise, flooding, hurricanes and oil spills.
"This is the first study to look at both the environmental factors and the human element," said Nina Lam, a professor of environmental science and principle investigator at LSU.
Lam's team will look at areas north of Lake Ponchartrain and compare them to portions south of the lake.
The goal of the project is to help increase the resilience of the region and provide ideas for a sustainable plan.
