Modeling fl ow and sediment transport dynamics in the lowermost Mississippi River , Louisiana , USA , with an upstream alluvial-bedrock transition and a downstream bedrock-alluvial transition : Implications for land building using engineered diversions


The lowermost Mississippi River, defined herein as the river segment downstream of the Old River Control Structure and hydrodynamically influenced by the Gulf of Mexico, extends for approximately 500 km. This segment includes a bedrock (or more precisely, mixed bedrock-alluvial) reach that is bounded by an upstream alluvial-bedrock transition and a… (More)
