Flood enhancement through flood control

Robert E. Criss and Everett L. Shock
Flood enhancement through flood control
Geology (Boulder) (October 2001) 29 (10): 875-878


Flood stages for constant discharge have increased 2-4 m over the past century at numerous locations in the Mississippi River basin. However, no increases are observed on rivers such as the Meramec and the upper Missouri, which have been spared extensive river engineering projects. Flood-stage increases on the middle Mississippi River and lower Missouri River are mostly attributable to channelization.
