Losing Louisiana series

A project by The Times-Picayune (New Orleans, La.)  looks at the precarious nature of southern Louisiana as land sinks due to subsidence while the waters of the Gulf are rising.   Over the next 100 years, the region could see a 2- to 6-foot rise in sea level, leaving cities like New Orleans dependent on levees for protection from the waters of the Gulf.  Videos and interactive graphics help depict what is happening to the coastline, and what might be done to save it.
