Wetland loss in Louisiana.
This loss is the result of a variety of complex interactions among a number of physical, chemical, biological, and cultural processes. Important geologic phenomena include sea-level change, subsidence, compaction, and change in location of deltaic depocenters. Of the many catastrophic events that cause erosion, the hurricane with its high energy, is the most important in Louisiana. Biological factors include rates of marsh growth and the degradation caused by marsh fauna. -from Authors
