Louisiana Coastal Geohazards Atlas Planned
La. Geological Survey, N.O. Geological Society lead application of landforms base map
The Louisiana Geological Survey, or LGS, and the New Orleans Geological Society have joined to lead the development of a Louisiana Coastal Geohazards Atlas. The focus will be on the landforms developed in a variety of underlying geologic settings and which are affected by faulting, subsidence, and flooding. The atlas will have a landforms base map that will provide useful information for technical analysis and use by governments, the private sector and informed citizens in planning land use and infrastructure development. A final draft of the atlas is scheduled to be available for review in late December 2018, with production planned for mid-2019.
