Description

The Minnesota River is an important tributary to the Mississippi River, both in terms of water quantity and water quality. The geologic history of the Minnesota River plays an important role in contributing to the water quality impairment of the Mississippi River. This talk will examine how the geomorphology of the Minnesota River influences the watershed management actions available and will also present the results of a modeling effort aimed at elucidating the connections between possible management actions and their impact on the continued geomorphologic evolution of the river and associated water quality problems.
