Abstract

The alluvial valley of the Missouri River adjacent to Iowa is being investigated to determine the geologic and engineering properties of alluvial deposits. The environment in which the alluvium accumulates is believed to control the nature and distribution of the deposits. The fundamental methods and tools of geomorphology are being used to delineate alluvial environments. Data are presented on the range of particle size and frequency of textural distribution for several deposits mapped as occurring in similar environments.
