Causes of hot-spot wetland loss in the Mississippi delta plain
by Robert A. Morton, Ginger Tiling, and Nicholas F. Ferina
"Causes of hot-spot wetland loss in the Mississippi delta plain" appeared as an article in Environmental Geosciences. The article is an ten-page discussion of the rapid acceleration and unexpected decline in wetland losses in the Mississippi delta plain and the close temporal and spatial correlations among regional wetland loss, high subsidence rates, and large-volume fluid production from nearby hydrocarbon fields.
