Description: Technical memorandum
Preface: This project was authorized by the President, Mississippi River Commission, during the summer of 1946. The authorization was cited in the government contract between Dr. R. N. Fisk, consultant, and the Mississippi River Commission. Much of the data utilized in this study was obtained from the Memphis District Office, over a period of years. These data include hydrographic survey sheets; levee, revetment, channel stabilization and other borings made during the past several years; channel stabilization plan sheets; Memphis District revetment and dike sheets; and project and index maps of the Memphis District. Miscellaneous maps, quadrangles, aerial photographs, and early stream channel maps were obtained from the Mississippi River Commission. Additional data were obtained from field inspection trips and from discussions with personnel of the Memphis District. Preliminary work on this study was accomplished by members of the geological staff of the Waterways Experiment Station under the supervision of Dr. R. N. Fisk, consultant. Final assembly of data and writing of the report were accomplished by P. R. Mabrey, W. B. Steinriede, Jr., and A. Osanik under the supervision of W. J. Turnbull.
