Wabash River cutoff sampling
Posted 31 March 2009 - 12:31 PM
I've been meaning to post these pictures.
Here's a pre-cutoff shot during a flood that I found on Google Earth.
And a dry photo I found on maps.live.com with the approx channel drawn in. You can also see how active the channel has been in the last couple thousand years with the sloughs that haven't been drained.
Here's the new channel, which is running along the east end of the photo, looking downstream from the old channel. You can see how much its downcut through the sediment.
And then a little later in the summer...
Should be really good sturgeon spawning habitat.
