Mississippi Project

Connectivity in oxbow lakes

August 2021 - December 2023


Participating Agencies

  • Mississippi Department of Wildlife Fisheries and Parks

We intend to construct a typology of connectivity modes suitable for classifying the hundreds of floodplain lakes in the Lower Mississippi River Alluvial Valley into connectivity types. The types can provide a framework for developing broad-scale strategy to adaptively manage bigheaded carps access to floodplain lakes.
