Abstract:

We quantified the shoreline erosion of 46 islands in Barataria, Breton Sound and Terrebonne Bay for before and after the DWH oil spill to determine how much shoreline was lost, if the losses were temporary, and if recovery/restoration occurred. The erosion rates were then calculated for five intervals: (1) the 2010 initial post-oiling interval up to December 2010, (2) the early 2011 interval from December 2010 to spring/summer 2011, (3) from the beginning of the first interval to the end of the second (spring/summer 2011), (4) from spring/summer 2011 to the end of 2012, and (5) from May 2010 to the end of 2012.

Purpose:

To assess the changing island size for before and after the 2010 oil spill.
