Exploring the Potential for Conservation Lands in Middle Mississippi River Floodplains to Mitigate Flood Flows for Ecosystem Services

Reconnection of floodplains to their rivers has been considered a fundamentally beneficial ecological practice.

River-Corridor Habitat Dynamics

River-Corridor Habitat Dynamics research seeks to improve the scientific basis for ecological restoration of large rivers. Emphasis is placed on understanding how hydrologic and geomorphic characteristics combine to create dynamic habitats for native and exotic fauna and flora.

Synthesis of Hydrologic and Geomorphic Drivers of Riverine Habitat Dynamics

Habitats of many rivers of the US are perceived to be degraded as a result of human-induced stresses. CERC scientist are focusing physical habitat as measured by depth, velocity, and substrate, in order to establish relevance of physical habitat to biota.

Geomorphic Trends and Dynamics, Missouri National Recreational River

The two mainstem Missouri River segments of the Missouri National Recreational River (MNRR) represent some of the least altered channel form and most complex physical habitat on the Missouri River. The 39-mile segment is located in an inter-reservoir reach between Fort Randall Dam and Lewis and Clark Lake and the 59-mile segment is located below Gavins Point Dam, the downstream-most water control...

Floodplain Processes and Habitats

Tools to quantify and predict benefits of floodplain connectivity are lacking, diminishing the ability of managers and stakeholders to assess present and future ecological benefits. In particular, tools are needed to evaluate the duration, seasonality, extent, and magnitude of inundation on floodplains under present conditions. Furthermore, tools are needed to allow for translating inundation into...

Pallid Sturgeon Habitat Dynamics

CERC scientists apply advanced measurement and modeling approaches to quantifying habitats in large rivers. Our research has been applied to improving the understanding of the reproductive ecology of the endangered pallid sturgeon (Scaphirhynchus albus) in the Missouri River.
