Boot Camp on the Bayou

April 07, 2005

Tulane environmental law students learn in many ways, and from several disciplines.  The Coastal and Wetlands Class takes on field work in marsh ecology from top Louisiana scientists at the Marine Consortium facility in Cocodrie, literally the end of the road.     Located in the heart of the most productive coastal zone in America and active oil and gas development, the study area offers a wide range of marsh types, impacts and conditions.  The program this year featured evening seminars on coastal erosion, mariculture and the economics of the shrimp industry.  But the real exercise takes place in the marsh, from dawn to dusk, sampling water, vegetation, fisheries and other parameters of healthy and unhealthy sites, and drawing conclusions.
