Workshopping landscape solutions to Hypoxia in the Gulf of Mexico.

Student research work from LA 4008 – Agri>Coastal provided varied yet comparable layers that were overlaid and shaped as part of an interdisciplinary design workshop. Bringing in researchers from across the Basin and the Gulf, the workshop produced innovative and feasible designs to combat hypoxia.
