This research was a collaborative effort by the Office of Geology. Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality and the Department of Geosciences, Mississippi State University as part of the Mississippi Coastal Geology and Regional Marine Study funded by the U.S. Geological Survey in the years 1990-1994. The purposes of the study were: a) to provide cartographic and quantitative baseline data from which land loss-particularly wetland loss--could be identified. b) to document temporal trends in land cover changes. especially in Mississippi's coastal wetlands, and c) to provide a starting point for further scientific research into the geomorphic processes that affected or were affected by alterations in Mississippi's wetlands and adjacent coastal uplands.
