Title:Sedimentation of Pool 19 on the Mississippi River Near Hamilton, Illinois: Background Analysis
Author(s):Bhowmik, Nani G.; Adams, J. Rodger
Mississippi River
Abstract:Streams and rivers are dynamic systems in which erosion and sedimentation take place on a continuous basis. When the inflow of sediment exceeds the normal carrying capacity of the river, sedimentation will occur. The river will then become shallower with a fairly well defined main channel or will behave like a distributary channel without any defined channel. Natural and man-made constrictions can either accelerate or prolong the normal transition of rivers from one hydraulic state to another.
