Description: Miscellaneous Paper
Abstract: A numerical model called BIRM (Branched Implicit River Model) has been applied assuming that various flood event outflows at Kentucky Dam on the Tennessee River are superimposed on 1937 flow conditions on the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers. Eight different flood events have been routed down the Tennessee, Ohio, and Lower Mississippi Rivers as far as Caruthersville, MO, on the Lower Mississippi. Results in the form of elevation and discharge hydrographs at several key locations plus envelope profiles of the maximum and minimum water-surface elevations from Kentucky Dam to Caruthersville, MO, are presented for each flood event.
