On March 25, 2003, Erika Hammar-Klose and Elizabeth Pendleton of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS)'s Woods Hole Field Center (WHFC) gave a "telelecture" to a seminar class at Louisiana State University from the WHFC Conference Room.

The class, Environmental Hazards Analysis, is taught by Professor John Pine of the university's Department of Environmental Studies (DOES). Erika and Elizabeth talked about the coastal-vulnerability-index (CVI) studies completed by scientists at the WHFC along the Gulf of Mexico coast and within Gulf Islands National Seashore. The CVI studies investigate the potential impacts of sea-level rise on U.S. coasts and within National Park Service coastal parks.

The presentation included discussions on the problem of sea-level rise, CVI methodology, data sources included in the CVI and reasons for their inclusion, and final results of the study.
