Abstract:

Past, Present and Future Conditions for Tide, Surge and Hydrologic Flows over Low Gradient Coastal Land-margin Systemsof the Northern Gulf of Mexico

Dr. Scott C. Hagen
Director, Louisiana State University Center for Coastal Resilience
Professor, Civil & Environmental Engineering , Louisiana State University

This presentation will provide a historical basis for understanding the future response of tide, surge and hydrologic flows at the coastal land-margin. The relatively recent historical land loss of the Mississippi River Delta Plain (MRDP) will be highlighted to inform how the coupled human and natural system is responding. Are the impacts of relative sea level rise (i.e., subsidence and eustatic sea level rise) in the MRDP and throughout the northern Gulf of Mexico the Sirens of our doom, or a call for enhanced coastal and ecological designs? Transdisciplinary research outcomes from recent synergistic studies throughout the northern Gulf of Mexico provide mixed results in evaluations of sustainability and resilience. Discussion will focus on a paradigm shift to a system of systems approach to evaluate the coastal dynamics of sea level rise.
