The special session on "Restoring America's Coastal Heartland" is part of the technical program set for this year's Gulf Coast Association of Geological Societies annual meeting, set Sept. 25-27 at the Hyatt Regency in New Orleans.

This year's meeting theme is "Gulf Coast Geologic Gumbo -- A Recipe for Success." The coastal restoration and processes symposium represents a first-of-its-kind event for GCAGS, and some of the talks scheduled for the four sessions are:

  • Major World Delta Variability and Wetland Loss.
  • A Revised Delta Cycle Curve for the Holocene Deltaic Deposits of South Louisiana.
  • Backbarrier and Sea Level Controls on Tidal Prism and Impacts on Barrier Islands.
  • An Improved Ocean Observing System for Coastal Louisiana.
  • Modeling Future Changes in Barrier Island Wetlands on Galveston Island, Texas.
  • Rebuilding the Louisiana Coastline: How Long Can We Wait?
  • Meteorological Influences of Coastal Processes on Fecal Coliform Pollution in the Mississippi Sound.
  • Understanding Subsurface Contributions to Subsidence in Coastal Louisiana.

The symposium will end with a panel discussion on "Predicting Subsidence for the 21st Century: Understanding of Contemporary and Future Subsidence Processes and Rates."
