Abstract:

The purpose of the first appendix is to present an inventory of existing land resources in the Missouri River Basin and their use, and to analyze the availability and adaptability of the resources for satisfying future requirements. Hydrology, the science which treats of water, its properties, phenomena, and distribution, must be a basic consideration in development of any plan for water and related land resources development. It becomes of especial significance in the Missouri River Basin because of the basins large size and the great variation in hydrologic characteristics encountered in this large area. This appendix describes the hydrologic studies undertaken for framework planning, and it summarizes the results of those studies.
