Abstract:

The Upper Mississippi River System UMIS has been dramatically altered by changing land use and management practices within its basin. One consequence of these changes is the severe environmental problem of increased sedimentation in river backwater areas. The Long Term Resource Monitoring Program is addressing this problem by expanding and initiating new research of sediment movement in the UMRS. As part of its new research, this annotated bibliography was generated to identify, review, and provide information about studies associated with sediment transport and deposition in large river environments. It contains 275 citations and abstracts for works that were published primarily between 1970 and early 1995. A list of 41 keywords is included to help differentiate between the various subjects associated with river sediment. A keyword index is also provided to assist readers in rapidly locating information about specific topics.
