Description

Article by Calvin R. Fremling regarding human industrial effects on the Mississippi River system, with special notice to interactions between the upper river and the coastal zone of Louisiana and the Atchafalaya River. From the introduction: "The Mississippi River has been vital in the exploration, colonization and development of the United States; during the past 150 years it has been particularly important in the transport of commercial cargoes. Intensively developed to serve as a water highway to the sea, the river has been shortened, dammed, constrained, dredged and polluted. Man's modifications have had profound ecological impacts - not only on the river itself, but also on Louisiana's fragile wetlands and barrier islands." Originally presented at/printed in Estuarine and Coastal Management - Tools of the Trade. Proceedings of the Tenth National conference of the Coastal Society. October 12-15, 1986. New Orleans, LA. Part of the Cal R. Fremling Collection.
