Subsidence properties of holocene sediments: S. LA.
As part of a comprehensive USGS-sponsored study of processes that drive subsidence and wetland loss in south Louisiana, two continuously cored deep borings (60 m and 72 m) were acquired in south Terrebonne Parish marshlands. Both borings were supported with in-situ geotechnical data acquired by cone penetration testing. Additional laboratory testing included X-ray radiography, lithologic description, radiocarbon dating, selected shear strength and consolidation tests, pore water geochemistry, and solid phase diagenetic properties examination (X-ray diffraction for mineralogy, thin-section petrology, and scanning electron microscopy).
