Abstract

Historic hydrographic surveys (1:20,000) from the late 1800s and early 1900s document the natural channel morphology of the Lower Mississippi, and are used to construct a 1225-km profile of the channel thalweg. This study documents the pool-riffle morphology within a large fine-grained channel, and illustrates the importance of these features within the context of meandering processes. Findings suggest that the pool-riffle adjustment of meander bends occurs synchronously with planform adjustment, and represents meandering in the vertical dimension
