Abstract:

The report presents the results of a geologic study of the lower portion of the Arkansas River Valley extending from the vicinity of Pine Bluff, Arkansas, to the mouth. The purposes of this study were a to determine the types and distribution of soils in the alluvial portion of the valley and the conditions under which these materials were formed b to delineate the configuration of the bedrock surface on which the alluvial materials were deposited and c to ascertain the geologic history of the region. The relationship of geology to the proposed navigation improvements of the Arkansas River from the mouth to Catoosa, Oklahoma, is discussed.
