Abstract: In 2010, data were analyzed from 19 U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) gages to develop the USACE Tide Gage Atlas for Coastal Louisiana. The purpose of this document was to develop a useful tool for analyzing the sea level change trends in the coastal areas of Louisiana, where some of the highest relative sea level rise rates in the United States are observed (because of the significant subsidence in this region). The data were referenced to a common gage datum, analyzed for shifts, and any known adjustments removed. This 2015 update revised five of the nineteen original gages by extending the record of gage data and reapplying the linear trend. Eleven new gages were added, expanding the atlas to a total of thirty gages. The new data were evaluated in the same manner as the previously studied gages: adjustments were made to remove shifts in the data, river discharge influences were removed where necessary, and linear trends were applied. Continuous revisions of the atlas are intended to not only keep sea level change trends updated but also to expand data resources for ongoing and future projects.
