Abstract

This paper elaborates on the pattern of overbank sedimentation associated with the point failure of artificial levees during the summer 1993 flood in the upper Mississippi River basin. These failures inundated clearly delineated, 16 to 179 km[2] sections of the floodplain. The AA. focus on the levee break complex at Sny Island and the aggregate pattern of overbank deposition within the 20.2 Km[2] Union Township Levee and Drainage District. They also examine the sensitivity of the riparian landscape in the upper Mississippi River valley to the summer 1993 flood by comparing the response of the floodplain in the study reach to that of the floodplain reaches further downriver
