The subject is the disappearing Louisiana coast.
- The Terrebonne Basin has experienced the greatest decrease in wetland area in the State of Louisiana with approximately 502 square miles (1,302 km2) or 321,730 acres of net loss since 1932.
- The Barataria Basin has experienced the second greatest land loss of the nine coastal Louisiana basins, with a net loss of approximately 432 square miles (1,121 km2) or 277,000 acres of wetlands since 1932.
