In the spring semester of 2012, students from the Applied Environmental Management (EMS 3040) class collaborated with students in Landscape Architecture and Geology & Geophysics classes to take a transdisciplinary look at disturbed coastal systems in Louisiana.
Guest speakers, miniprojects in each of the disciplines, and a field trip to Fourchon prepared the students for the final project.
The culminating task for the student teams was the development of a plan for an area near Fourchon with visions for the near and distant (100 years) future.
On May 10, 2012, student groups presented their projects to a jury of experts and other visitors.
