Coastal Land Loss Primer

CHER is proud to present
 Coastal Land Loss in Southeast Louisiana: An Advanced Introduction, an open access mini-textbook provided free of charge to schools and libraries in Louisiana and beyond. Coastal Land Loss in Southeast Louisiana offers a basic overview of the causes and consequences of coastal erosion, subsidence, and sea level rise along the Gulf Coast of the Mississippi River Delta. The textbook is intended for use in advanced high school classrooms and introductory undergraduate courses. The above link provides access to the ebook version of the mini-textbook formatted as an archived .pdf file. We also have paperback hard copies available for use in schools, libraries, and other nonprofit institutions, which we will provide free of charge. Supplies are limited, however, and we are offering hard copies of the mini-textbook on a first come, first serve basis.

If you are an educator and you would like to use the paperback version of our textbook in your class, please contact us using the details provided below. Other teaching resources, including an instructor's manual and brief video tutorials, are coming soon!

The Coastal Land Loss in Southeast Louisiana project is funded by a generous grant from the RosaMary Foundation and by individual donors. If you or your business would like to support this educational outreach project, please consider making a donation or contact us at the following details:
