Seas are rising, coastlines are sinking, and violent storms are coming more often. It’s more than a problem for Louisiana, it is the greatest global challenge of our time. As our environment changes, real-time science becomes more important than ever. The home to that research is the Water Campus, a 35-acre mas- ter-planned research and business campus rising on the Mississippi River. Here, scientists and engineers are sharing and testing ideas, offering the best solutions for adapt- ing to shifting coasts, from Baton Rouge to coastal communities around the world.
