Our studies about sea-level rise and subsidence in the Mississippi Delta have been covered by various news stories. A recent paper in Nature Geoscience was accompanied by a News & Views story by John Day and Liviu Giosan, and also picked up by the New York Times.

Our previous work was featured in a press release issued by GSA, as well as a report in the October 2006 issue of Geotimes. Our findings have also aired on television, including CBS News (as part of their State of the Union coverage of January 23, 2007) and The Weather Channel (an episode by the weekly show Forecast Earth to "celebrate" the opening of the 2007 hurricane season). The future of New Orleans is the subject of discussion in the August 2007 issue of National Geographic Magazine.

Our work on the abrupt sea-level rise associated with the catastrophic drainage of Lake Agassiz 8200 years ago that resulted in abrupt climate cooling, received worldwide media coverage in December 2004 and January 2005. A small sample can be found here:
