The University of New Orleans (UNO) established the Coastal Research Laboratory within the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences to provide information, knowledge, technology and human resources for natural resource management in Louisiana and throughout the United States. The specialization of coastal research and restoration science investigates the shallow geologic framework, the landforms and sediments, the process of change, and the impact of man in the world's coastal regions. UNO's goal is to better understand and develop solutions to the geoscience problems presented by the coastal zone as well as the environmental conflicts created by the presence of man.
