Geomorphology and quaternary geologic history of the Lower Mississippi Valley by Roger T Saucier ( )
3 editions published between 1994 and 2006 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Abstract: this comprehensive, two-volume synthesis, the first in 50 years, is aimed at a multidisciplinary audience concerned with multiple aspects of water resources engineering and natural and cultural resources management. It presents at a scale of 1:250,000 the distribution of environments of deposition as compiled from more than 30 years of detailed geologic mapping, as well as a new interpretation and delineation of the eroded suballuvial surface. A detailed interpretation of the evolution of the alluvial valley and deltaic plain is presented and illustrated by a series of 13 paleogeographic reconstructions. The chronology of valley events is based on stratigraphic relationships and radiometric age determinations but relies heavily on archeological evidence. The geologic processes and controls that affect the entire region include continental glaciations, climate, sea level variations, tectonics and diapirism, and subsidence. Both erosional and depositional landscapes are represented, and the lithology, soils, and geotechnical properties of the latter are presented in narrative and tabular form for the principal fluvial, lacustrine, eclian, deltaic, and deltaic-marine environments. Discussions of neotectonics in the region focus on the New Madrid Seismic Zone, and a section of the synthesis addresses special engineering considerations such as groundwater occurrence, mass movements, river meandering, and long-term stability."--Publisher's website

A hydrogeomorphic classification for wetlands by Mark M Brinson ( Book )
4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Wetlands can be classified by methods that range from the use of commonly recognized vegetation or cover types, to systems based on hydrology, geomorphology, or some combination of the two. The classification presented here is based on the hydrogeomorphic functions of wetlands. There are three basic properties that are used to provide insight into wetland functions: 1. Geomorphic setting-The three categories are depressional, riverine, and fringe. Extensive peatlands constitute a separate category because of their unique topographic and hydrologic conditions. Depressional wetlands can be open or closed to surface flows, and can be tightly or loosely connected to groundwater flows. Riverine wetlands range from those associated with steep to low gradient streams and are represented by floodplains. Fringe wetlands are sea level or lake level controlled. Peat lands normally initiate their development in depressions. If peat lands develop beyond the original depression, they can create their own unique geomorphic settings. Each of these four types roughly corresponds with limited combinations of water sources and hydrodynamic conditions

Wildlife community habitat evaluation a model for deciduous palustrine forested wetlands in Maryland by Richard L Schroeder ( )
2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The species richness of forest interior birds, reptiles, and amphibians in deciduous palustrine forested wetlands is influenced by habitat conditions within the forest and the spatial arrangement of forest tracts within the surrounding landscape. Habitat fragmentation is a major determinant of species richness and composition in these forests. The model predicts richness from an evaluation of habitat and spatial variables, with the highest levels of richness assumed to be found in mature, unfragmented forested wetland tracts. The spatial variables in the model can be assessed with remotely sensed data and analyzed with geographic information systems software. A test of the tract portion of the model revealed positive correlations between the spatial model variables and forest interior bird richness from 18 eastern forest Breeding Bird Census plots

Floristic index for establishing assessment standards a case study for Northern Ohio by Barbara K Andreas ( )
2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The purpose of this report was to adapt the existing Wilhelm method (Swink and Wilhelm 1979, 1994) for evaluating the reference standard for species occurrences at reference wetlands and other vegetated habitats as a method to evaluate natural places by providing a floristic quality assessment index. This report contains a floristic checklist that is applicable to 31 counties in northern Ohio. The quality index ratings presented here are intended to both assist regional efforts to establish reference standards for species occurrence in wetlands and evaluate natural places in this region. The modem native flora of northern Ohio is composed of a mixture of taxa that became established after the melting of the last Wisconsinan ice advance, about 16,000 BP (Goldthwait 1959). The native flora of this part of glaciated Ohio resulted from (a) the northward migration of species that survived south of the glacial moraine (Delcourt and Delcourt 1981), (b) the establishment in suitable habitats of northern plants that had migrated southward into Ohio in front of the glacial advance, (c) the eastward extension of prairie plants and plants more typical of drier areas that occurred during the Xerothermic Period 8,000 - 5,000 years BP (Benninghoff 1964), and (d) the westward migration of coastal species via eastward drainage channels that formed in the St. Lawrence lowlands as the ice front retreated (Andreas 1989)

Cumulative impact analysis of wetlands using hydrologic indices by John M Nestler ( )
2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In order to make informed decisions concerning cumulative impact analysis of wetlands, the Corps of Engineers Districts and other wetlands professionals need data often not directly available. Cumulative impact assessment of wetlands includes relating historic patterns of flow, derived from the stream's flow record, to changes in the watershed associated with that stream. Harmonic analysis and time-scale analysis were applied to selected stream records to ascertain their potential for describing cumulative impacts. The study area chosen included selected streams in the White River basin, Arkansas/Missouri. The Cache River received particular emphasis because a significant amount of information was readily available concerning it and its surroundings. Daily flow values were retrieved from each of the streams. Using nonlinear, harmonic analysis as well as time-scale analysis (a technique adapted from fractal geometry) to reveal the time-dependent patterns in the respective samples, the results were compared decade-by-decade to discern changes in the historic, seasonal patterns. Other streams in the White River basin were analyzed in the same manner and compared with the Cache River, noting historic changes in land use and stream regulation. The study identifies methods with the potential to differentiate historic time frames in which disruptions were likely to have occurred
