St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center > Subsidence and Wetland Loss Related to Fluid Energy Production, Gulf Coast Basin

Conclusions Continued: Marsh sediments are preserved where accommodation space is created by induced subsidence, Prior explanations of regional wetland loss fail to explain the rapid increase and decrease in rates of loss (1950s-1970s), Close temperal and spatial correlations among regional wetland loss, highest historical subsidence rates, maximum rates of fluid extraction and pore-pressure reduction, and locations of potentially reactivated faults, Decrease in wetland loss possibly related to decreased subsidence associated with decrease oil & gas production
