April 3, 2002 at the Chenier Plain

The Chenier Plain is a muddy strip of Louisiana coast west of Atchafalaya Bay.  It is the primary focus of our geomorphology project.  Below you can see some pictures from our field trip on April 3, 2002 to this unique sedimentary environment. 
In this picture the muddy plain can be seen with new marsh grass colonization in front of the old, established vegetation line. This site is west of Fresh Water Bayou outlet.
