Why is New Orleans sinking?

13 juni 2016 - 31 juli 2020

After Katrina (2005) much attention was paid to the origins of this disaster. Studies mostly focussed on levee failures, disaster management, meteorology, wetland development, etc. Land subsidence, the main reason why New Orleans can have flood waters of several meters depth, got much less attention. This project quantifies the amount of subsidence as a result of soil oxidation, which is a main contributor to total subsidence. Such information supports developing management strategies to slow down subsidence for a safer future city.
