The Great Flood of 1993--What If?

Cables Over the Mississippi
As the designer of the Great River Bridge over the Mississippi between Gulfport, Ill. and Burlington, Iowa, Sverdrup Corp., St. Louis, had to find a way to connect the new five-lane crossing...

Seismic Evaluation of the Tied-arch Bridge Across the Mississippi River on I-40
The bridge reported in this paper is a two-span steel tied-arch bridge supported on massive caisson foundations. Site specific seismic studies were carried out to establish the ground...

Construction of the Clark Cable-Stayed Bridge at Alton, Illinois
The Clark Cable-Stayed Bridge crosses the Mississippi River at Alton, Illinois. The successful bid by McCarthy Bros/Clark Bridge JV was for the steel alternative. The bridge design included...

Opening Remarks by Robert L. Wiegel

Velocity and Turbulence Measurement from the Illinois and Mississippi Rivers
This paper presents a data measurement program that was used for collecting the velocity data associated with barge-tow traffic on the Illinois and Mississippi Rivers and includes a discussion...

Real-Time Data Collection of Scour at Bridges
The record flood on the Mississippi River during the summer of 1993 provided a rare opportunity to collect data on scour of the streambed at bridges and to test data collection equipment...

Recent Applications of Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers
A Broadband acoustic Doppler current profiler (BB-ADCP) is a new instrument being used by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) to measure stream discharge and velocities, and bathymetry....

Frequency of the 1993 Flood in the Upper Mississippi River Basin
The frequency of the 1993 flood in the upper Mississippi River Basin is characterized by applying Bulletin 17B and L-moment methods to 111 unregulated watersheds in the basin. The analysis...

Riparian Wetlands and Flood Stages
The paper studies concurrent flood stage records from two fourth-order streams in the hills of northwest Mississippi with similar soils, watershed relief and overall land use. The streams...

Climatic Perspective on the 1993 Mississippi R. Flood
The 1993 summer flooding in the Upper Mississippi River Basin was the most devastating flood of modern times with damage estimates in the range of 15-20 billion dollars. The paper describes...

1993 Mississippi Record Stages and Levee Failures
Record-setting stages, flooding duration, and multiple levee failures are distinguishing features of the Mississippi River 1993 flood. The peak stages reached at stations along the Illinois...

Historical Trends in Flood Discharges on the Upper Mississippi River
Long-term streamgage records in the Upper Mississippi River Basin were analyzed using a Kendall Tau-b analysis to determine trends in flooding and average flows. Over the 130 years of...

The Miller City Levee Break and Incipient Meander Cutoff
On July 15, 1993, the flooding Mississippi River broke through a levee near Miller City, Ill., at the head of the Mississippi Embayment, approximately 55 km upstream from Cairo, Ill. Flow...

Temporal and Spatial Variations of Suspended Sediment Concentration during Navigation Traffic in a Natural River
Suspended sediment samples were collected within the channel border area during barge-tow passage events at three cross-sectional locations on the Upper Mississippi River. Typical plots...
