Studies on the Physical Effects of Commercial Navigation Traffic in the Upper Mississippi River
Changes in water velocity caused by passage of commercial navigation vessels were measured 180-500 ft (55-152 m) from shore at River Mile (RM) 504.8 in Pool 14 of the upper Mississippi...

Model Study of the Guadalupe River Bypass Culvert
A hydraulic model investigation of proposed channel improvements for the Guadalupe River Channel was conducted at the US Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station in Vicksburg, Mississippi....

Corps of Engineers Drought Management Experiences
The drought of 1988-89 was one of the most severe on record for many regions of the United States. Its severity can be measured in terms of the areal extent of hydrologic impact, the record...

Waves Generated by Recreational Traffic on the Upper Mississippi River System
Vessels of all sizes, from canoes to 15-barge tows, share the Upper Mississippi River System (UMRS), and every vessel interacts with the river by means of its displacement, propulsion,...

Operational Model Development for Salinity Control
The 800 km2 Breton Sound estuary and watershed in Louisiana is being modeled to characterize its salinity regime in terms of hydrometeorological...

Montgomery Point Lock and Dam Entrance to the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System
The McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System has experienced a steady and positive increase in use. However, in the last 10 years changing conditions along the Mississippi River...

The Development of a Plan of Study to Evaluate the Physical and Biological Effects of Increased Navigation Traffic on the Mississippi River
An integrity team prepared a Plan of study (POS) that represents the first comprehensive effort on the Upper Mississippi River (UMR), to identify and quantify impacts associated with commercial...

Evaluation of the ARS Low Drop Grade Control Structure
The ARS low drop grade control structure was developed by Little and Murphy to provide efficient energy dissipation and effective grade control for streams in northern Mississippi. The...

Hydraulic Geometry of Mississippi Hill Streams
Hydraulic geometry data based on field and office studies are presented for a series of streams in the Black Creek and Long Creek watersheds in the upland hills of Central and Northern...

Data Acquisition for Determining the Physical Impacts of Navigation
Research is being conducted to determine the physical effects of navigation on the Upper Mississippi River System (UMRS). Extensive field data on various aspects of physical effects of...

Corps of Engineers Drought Activities in the Mississippi River Basin

Drought Induced Saltwater Intrusion on the Mississippi River

Ponds and Lagoons of Gulf Islands National Seashore
A physical and natural resource survey was conducted of the ponds and lagoons on Horn and Petit Bois Islands, Gulf Islands National Seashore, Mississippi. Petit Bois Island contains 17...

Analysis of Barrier Island Dynamics for Ship Channel Planning at Ship Island, Mississippi
Ship Island is located among a chain of barrier islands approximately 18 km south of Biloxi, Mississippi. During initial construction of Gulfport Harbor Ship Channel, 1901-1905, the channel...

Implementing a Groundwater Control Board
Memphis, Tennessee, situated on the banks of the Mississippi river, has never utilized this vast resource for water supply. Instead, Artesian wells have supplied the Memphis, Tennessee...

Application of Two-Dimensional Model to Predict Fine Sediment Deposition
The TABS-2 two-dimensional numerical modeling system was used to predict the potential for fine sediment deposition in the lock approach channels at Lock and Dam Nos. 4 and 5 on the Red...

Comparison of n Values in Natural and Dredged Channels
Manning's n values were determined for three stream channels in two complex watersheds in North Mississippi. The study covered a wide range of channel conditions and flow...

Corps of Engineers' Mississippi River Sediment Studies
In conjunction with the 1838 U.S. Army Corps of Engineers hydrographic survey of the Mississippi River, CPT A. Talcott collected sediment samples in the passes 'to determine...

Goodwin Creek Channel Morphology and Stability
Selected cross sections along Goodwin Creek channel, northern Mississippi, have been surveyed a total of twenty-one times since 1977 to document channel adjustments. Initial results of...

Simulating Long-Term Sedimentation Trends on the Lower Mississippi River
A one-dimensional numerical model was used to determine long-term aggradation and degradation trends in the lower Mississippi River. Geometry in the model came from hydrographic surveys....
