Abstract:

In recent years a considerable number of velocity and suspended sediment measurements have been made in the Atchafalaya and Lower Mississippi Rivers, two large and deep streams in the Lower Mississippi Valley. This paper presents the results of some of these measurements and a token comparison with theoretical and empirical procedures developed to provide this information analytically.
