Field Work — Mississippi River and delta trip, preparation

I’m off to Louisiana for a week to spend some time on the Mississippi River and MR delta with my advisor (who spent a lot of time researching there) and some other colleagues. We’ll be spending a week, starting in St. Francisville, LA and driving down as far as Empire, LA where we’ll be for a few days. The Mississippi is a really cool system for so many reasons, and we’re going to be on the river during a moderate-to-high discharge, especially considering recent events across Louisiana (

Below is a map showing roughly where we’ll be going. I’ll be sure to update with some pictures on the return.
