Salutation: As a coastal sedimentologist, I have long felt that I am part of an effort to restore deltas through large scale delta engineering that is intrinsically good. This paper shows that for powerless groups on the Mississippi Delta, coastal engineering has meant continual disruption. It’s forced me to think carefully about who benefits from my work. It also led to an introspective group meeting.
What was awesome? I couldn’t stop thinking about it!
