Distribution of Soils Bordering the Mississippi River from Donaldsonville to Head of Passes

Description: Summary: "This report maps the distribution of soils which border the Mississippi between river mile 189 and Head of Passes in southeast Louisiana with special regard to their engineering significance. The subsurface disposition of depositional environments and their associated soil types are shown on 34 subsurface profiles. The text describes the physiographic and geologic development of the area studied, summarizes physical and engineering characteristics of the engineering soil types mapped, and discusses some of the effects of geologic factors on river migration" (p. vii).
