On Tuesday, January 23rd, CHART participated in the Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium (LUMCON) Growth and Planning (Grapple) Panel. Dr. Lambeth represented CHART at the panel, which seeks to find solutions for LUMCON's facility in light of relative sea level rise. LUMCON, located in Cocodrie, a coastal town in Terrebonne Parish, is at risk to both subsidence and sea level rise, and requires a plan for future resilience in the changing environment. The panel will compose a plan to help the facility remain resilient into the future.
