New map out from the USGS on wetland loss in Louisiana- one of the things that we can monitor using different PLOTS tools such as aerial mapping and infrared.

And why should we all care about wetland loss? Here's a nice synopsis...

Shannon sent me these links too:

I usually use the 1 football field size per 30 minutes to be on the safe size since it actually averages out to every 15 minutes- this is a janky article, but obviously they have cut and paste from other sources, the LDWF has better information, but just an FYI: http://www.tulane.edu/~bfleury/envirobio/enviroweb/LandLoss/LandLoss.htm

Here are a couple more LA specific reading links about this: http://coastal.louisiana.gov/index.cfm?md=pagebuilder&tmp=home&pid=112 http://lacoast.gov/reports/rtc/1997/5.htm
