Pagination or Media Count:
The proposed deepening of the Southwest Pass of the Mississippi River to 55 feet is analyzed for its impacts on flow distributions and sedimentation changes. Results from two-dimensional numerical hydrodynamic and sediment transport models for a variety of plans and flow conditions are presented. The US Army Corps of Engineers TABS-2 modeling system is used. The constructed models cover the entire Mississippi River Delta downstream of Venice, Louisiana.
