Excerpt: The Mississippi River is the largest river in North America. Its 3.25 million km2 watershed includes parts of two Canadian provinces and parts or all of 31 U.S. states (Figure 1). Daily discharge (measured in the lower river at Vicksburg, Mississippi) ranges from 3 568 to 55 558 m3 s-1 and averages 17 358 m3 s-1. The Mississippi and its major tributaries - the Arkansas, Illinois, Missouri and Ohio rivers - have been central to the social and economic development of the United States. As a major transportation corridor, the river has been greatly altered for navigation and by developments in its watershed and floodplain for agriculture, industry and urbanization. Comprehensive treatments of the historic and present conditions in the Mississippi River are provided in Scarpino (1985); Fremling et al. (1989); Baker, Killgore and Kasul (1991); Rasmussen (1994); Weiner et al. (1998); U.S. Geological Survey (1999) and Fremling and Drazkowski (2000).
