With the rains approaching yet again…

On that note, I thought I would mention a few articles on our relationship with water. It can be very precarious.

First up, this article came out on the fourth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina and I’m disheartened as I hear very little about the wetlands and how they might be included in the recovery of the region. It’s entitled “Katrinaversary Urges Wetlands Restoration” by Karl Burkart at the Mother Nature Network.

Let’s follow that up with an interview over at Earth Sky entitled “John Goff Describes How Hurricane Ike Eroded Gulf Coast Islands“.

Up north we have this article, “After the Storms, an Island of Calm and Resilience by Eric Sanderson at the New York Times. And if you’re looking for a good read, I would check out Mr. Sanderson’s “Mannahatta: A Natural History of New York City”. I admit I haven’t read it but it looks good.

Finally we have this article on the topic of “River Deltas Sinking” at Science Daily via the New Scientist.
