Geological Survey U.S. Department of the Interior. Draining approximately 41% of the conterminous US, the Mississippi River has the seventh largest water discharge and suspended load of world rivers (Milliman and Meade,Meade, ).Sediment budgets from the upper basin to the “end member station” were first constructed (Meade and Parker,Meade et al.,Meade, ) using monitoring data from gauging stations operated by Cited by: For water yearsof the sediment load reaching Head of Passes, the distribution of suspended sediment load transported through each distributary is approximately 69% Southwest Pass ( A discharge of m 3 s À1 through the DPFD caused a reduction of salinity by 5 in the center of Barataria bay, near the location of the BU 1 and BU 2 sampling stations.

Streamside sediment accretion (2-y monitoring period) using feldspar plots indicates up to cm. Longer term Cs data reveal an average sediment accretion rate of.1 cm y 1 over 50þ years. implementation and operation of the Louisiana Water Discharge Permit System (LWDPS).

The relationship of physical factors to vegetation distribution and fishery harvest was analyzed using data from the Gulf of Mexico. Data from 64 estuaries were used to investigate the relationships with vegetation.

Fishery harvest in the southern Gulf of Mexico was analyzed using harvest statistics, estuarine area, and river discharge by state. Rates of relative sea-level rise and discharge of freshwater down the main stem of the Mississippi River (north of Louisiana) appear to have been constant throughout the s, indicating that the demise of the Mississippi Delta is probably a result of an inadequate sediment supply and an inefficient sediment delivery by: Study Area – The study area includes communities in the southeast Louisiana parishes of Ascension, Assumption, Jefferson, Lafourche, St.

Charles, St. James, and St. John the Baptist (Figure 11). The study area is bou- nded on the north and east by the Mississippi River Levee. The Mississippi-Atchafalaya River system has the third largest drainage basin ( × 10 6 km 2) and seventh largest freshwater discharge ( km 3 /year) in the world [1,2,3].About two thirds of the sediments and water are delivered by the Mississippi River and the rest are diverted to the Atchafalaya River [4,5].Over the past decades, especially after the s, sediment flux from the Cited by: 1.

The barrier-island systems of the Mississippi River Delta plain are currently undergoing some of the highest rates of Discharge and sediment data for Barataria Pass retreat in North America (~20 m/year).

Effective management of this coastal area requires an understanding of the processes involved in shoreline erosion and measures that can be enacted to reduce loss.

The dominant stratigraphy of the delta plain is fluvial mud. Sediment contaminants influenced sediment quality at locations near the shore in the northern portions of Mobile Bay. The BTEC was rated good for the sediment contaminants with 4 % of the area rated poor (Figure ).

Two locations were rated Cited by: 6. along Barataria Pass and Barataria Bay on the west side of West Grand Terre Island. In addition, an extension of the beach and dune habitat along the Gulf-front shoreline to the east end of the island would consist of approximately 56 acres spanning 5, feet of shoreline.

Cook Inlet discharge data were obtained from the Information on the ownership, exact location, and dis- charge rates of the platforms studied is provided in Appendix D, Scientists and technical staff within the USGS Coastal and Marine Geology Program study coastal and ocean resources from shorelines and estuaries to the continental shelf and deep sea, providing expertise, tools, products, and data that address and inform a broad array of resource challenges facing our Nation.

Coastal sediments are rapidly becoming rare materials and this leaves many coastal systems in a degraded state.

The modeling needed to evaluate the existing state and possible measures, e.g. to combat erosion or to restore environments such as mangroves and coral reefs are explored and the state of the art and remaining knowledge gaps are addressed.
