The March issue of Nature Geoscience features a paper co-authored by Kyle M. Straub, an assistant professor in the Department of Earth & Environmental Sciences at Tulane University, which examines how groundwater flow beneath the surface of the earth impacts the rate of erosion. The topic has local interest because it has recently been observed that significant erosion is occurring on New Orleans area levees primarily caused by seepage driven flow.
