    In places, erosion of Louisiana's barrier islands, which lie offshore of the estu­ aries and wetlands and separate and protect them from the open marine environment, exceeds 20 rn/yr. As reported in the recently published United States Geological Survey atlas of Louisiana's barrier islands,just within the past years. Louisiana’s Department of Natural Resources maintains that at current land loss rates, nearly , more acres, an area nearly the size of Rhode Island, will be under water by Below is a map, prepared by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), depicting the projected land loss of southeast Louisiana.

The first statewide comprehensive study of coastal erosion in Louisiana was conducted by Morgan and Larimore () for the Office of the Attorney General of the State of Louisiana (Morgan ). At the time, Louisiana was engaged in a dispute with the federal government about the ownership of offshore oil and gas rights.

Hart. $, 12 Louisiana Cooperative Barrier Island Erosion and Land Loss Study. PI: Shea Penland $,   This island is known as a barrier island, as it has served in the past as a buffer between the fierce Hurricanes of the Gulf of Mexico and the rest of the Louisiana coast. Like many such islands, however, Grand Isle has suffered from severe erosion, and the land loss here has reached epic proportions in recent years.
