Description: Potamology Report
Introduction: The second potamology conference with special hydraulics consultants was held at the Waterways Experiment Station on 23-24 May 1949. The conference was concerned principally with the laboratory or model investigations of river meandering and revetment; however, results of a field investigation of turbulence forces in the Mississippi River and a review of the recent bank failure and levee crevasse at Free Nigger Point, just upstream from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, were also presented.
