Title:Physical impacts of navigation: Ohio River field data collection
Author(s):Bogner, W. C.; Soong, T. W.; Bhowmik, Nani G.
Subject(s):Environmental impact of navigation
River navigation
Abstract:This report summarizes the data collected by the Illinois State Water Survey from the Ohio River to determine the physical impacts of navigation. The Louisville District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers initiated the field project on the Ohio River in which various physical, chemical, and biological data were collected in connection with the movement of tows with barges. The Illinois State Water Survey participated in the collection of physical data with respect to barge traffic. Barges with tows of varying horsepower were rented by the Corps of Engineers and navigated up and down the Ohio River at predetermined frequencies at the test site. This experimental river traffic was controlled as to speed, direction, and frequency. The following physical impacts data were collected by Water Survey engineers and scientist: a) nearshore velocity structure: magnitude, direction change, and turbulence intensity; b) wave characteristics: amplitude, period, duration, and relative magnitude; and c) resuspension of sediment: point and depth-integrated suspended sediment samples were collected within the channel border area for determination of sediment concentration and particle size distribution. No analyses of the data have been performed for this report.
