        Alluvial fans are characterized by a lack of fossils, a lobate geography, texturally immature sedimentary rocks, very poorly sorted and angular grains, cross bedding, and radial patterns of incised fluvial channels. Deposits are typically oxidized red in color as the sediment is rarely below the ground water table. Braided River Systems.

Relations between soil erosion and river-sediment discharge change so markedly in time and space, and the time lags between upland causes and downriver effects are so large relative to the rates of these changes, that any assumptions of equilibrium, or even steady state, must be carefully considered in the context of whatever time scale is.

The model will quantify the status of the groundwater system and help researchers, stakeholders, and. The Mississippi Alluvial Plain (a.k.a. Delta) is a distinctive natural region, in part because of its flat surface configuration and the dominance of physical features created by the flow of large streams.

This unique physiography occupies much of eastern Arkansas including all or parts of twenty-seven counties. The Alluvial Plain, flatter than any other region in the state, has elevations.

Meandering rivers develop where there is an abundance of fine-grained suspended-load sediment. Gradients are extremely low. Over the last miles of its course, the Mississippi River surface drops in elevation by only feet.

Fine-grained materials, such as clay and silt, easily conduct electricity while coarser-grained materials, like sand, are resistant to electrical flow. Since the geologic materials have a direct impact on groundwater flow, knowing the distribution of these materials is important pto understanding regional groundwater systems.

The Koster site is an ancient, deeply buried archaeological site located on Koster Creek, a narrow tributary stream incised into the alluvial deposits of the lower Illinois River Valley. The Illinois River is itself a major tributary of the Mississippi River in central Illinois and the site lies only about 48 kilometers (30 miles) north of.

A new era in alluvial geology began in the late 's with the investigation of the valley of the lower Mississippi River. This study, under the direction of H. Fisk (29, 27, 26), had the evidence from thousands of borings on which to base conclusions and geologic interpretations. For the first time, the details of a large river.

A model to simulate the time evolution of river delta formation process is presented. It is based on the continuity equation for water and sediment flow and a phenomenological sedimentation/erosion law.

Different delta types are reproduced by using different parameters and erosion rules. The structures of the calculated patterns are analyzed in space and time and compared. A meander is one of a series of regular sinuous curves, bends, loops, turns, or windings in the channel of a river, stream, or other watercourse.

It is produced by a stream or river swinging from side to side as it flows across its floodplain or shifts its channel within a valley. A meander is produced by a stream or river as it erodes the sediments comprising an outer, concave bank and. The expansive Mississippi Alluvial Plain spreads from the confluence of the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers in southern Illinois to the Gulf of Mexico.
