Comparative WWind Tunnel Testing of Bridge Road Decks
A 1:75 scale full aeroelastic model of the Quincy Bridge over the Mississippi River was tested in the National Research Council of Canada 9 m multiplied by 9 m wind tunnel. Tests were...

Changing Hydrology - The Middle Mississippi River
Observed daily flow and stage at major stream gages on the middle Mississippi River are numerically and graphically analyzed to quantify and illustrate the magnitude and seasonality of...

Modelmania
The idea that model testing could be useful in planning for the control of water in rivers and other waterways received little support in this country until John R. Freeman's...

Magnitude and Frequency Analysis in Large Rivers
A study of the magnitude and frequency of sediment transport was conducted on the Mississippi River at Natchez, MS, Red River at Alexandria, LA, and Pearl River at Bogalusa, LA. The individual...

Mississippi River Sediment Load and Regime Equations
Data collected by the Corps of Engineers were used to evaluate the interaction of such parameters as river slope, suspended sediment load, channel geometry, and river discharge. Calculations...

Lower Mississippi River Salt Intrusion Modeling
A laterally averaged numerical model called LAEM has been employed for both a 40- and 55-ft channel. In addition, LAEM has been applied with an increased height of the natural river crossing...

Rock Island District Hydropower
The paper discusses status of hydropower studies within the Rock Island District of the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers. It presents an overview of the low head hydropower studies on those...

Assessment of Probable Fishery Impacts of Hydroelectric Development at Lock and Dam No. 26 (Replacement), Mississippi River
Early coordination with affected Federal and state agencies allowed completion of an Environmental Assessment for a hydroelectric plant proposed for Lock and Dam No. 26 (Replacement)....

Case History: St. Louis Municipal Terminal

Classification and Behavior of Meander Migration
Meander migrations on the Mississippi River between Cairo, Illinois and Baton Rouge, Louisiana for the time period between the years 1765 and 1930 were classified into six categories based...

Orleans Parish Drainage Improvements
A case study of the development of an urban drainage master plan for Orleans Parish, Louisiana is presented. The Parish, which occupies an area of approximately 98,000 acres, lies entirely...

Development of the Nauvoo Point Plant Beds
In Pool 19, Mississippi River, the accumulation of sediment has resulted in soft-substrate benthic communities or macrophyte beds. Three areas in the downstream 12 miles of the 46. 3 mile...

Irrigation and Groundwater Quality in the South
Impact of irrigation trend, water table fluctuations, crop management, and tillage systems on groundwater quantity and quality of the southeast (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina)...

Mechanics of a Large Eddy in the Mississippi River

Anti-Bid Suit Dismissed in Mississippi

Use of a Two-Dimensional Flow Model to Quantify Aquatic Habitat
This paper describes the use of a numerical two-dimensional flow model to evaluate the impacts of potential hydropower retrofits on downstream flow distributions at Lock and Dam No. 8...

Effect of Subsurface Drainage in the Lower Mississippi Valley on Surface Water Quality
Sediment and nutrient losses were measured from a subsurface drainage-runoff-erosion experiment for the years 1981 to 1984. The experiment, located near Baton Rouge, Louisiana, consisted...

Special Management Area Planning in Mississippi's Coastal Zone: The Port Bienville Experience
In Mississippi, the key state agency charged with the responsibility for coastal wetland protection is the Bureau of Marine Resources, a sub-division of the Department of Wildlife Conservation....

Multidisciplinary Barge Fleeting Site-Evaluation
The U. S. Maritime Administration, in cooperation with the State of Louisiana, recently (March 1985) released a major report on barge fleeting on the Lower Mississippi River. The study...

Comparing Flood Stage-Discharge Data—Be Careful!
A long term stage-discharge record is extremely valuable data. However, simplified applications of long term records to draw sweeping conclusions about man's effects should be avoided,...
