Q16.26 The deterioration of Isles Dernieres is bad news, to be sure, but given the proverbial balance of nature, isnâ€™t there some good news as well? If so, what is it? Hint: Look back again at Figure 16.23. 1853 â€™â€”'â€”' 0 5km Figure 16.24 This is the area outlined by the bold rectangle in Figure 16.23, showing Isles Dernieres area as it appeared in 1853. There was a single Isle Derniere at that time. Terrebonne Bay Caillou Lake Pelto Bay Isles Dernieres 5mi 1978 F 0 5km Figure 16.25 This is the same area as that shown in Figure 16.24, but as it appeared after 125 years of erosion by waves and currents of the Gulf of Mexico. But the answer to Q1626 is not to say that the Mississippi River is behaving as always before. The amount of delta-building sediment delivered to the Gulf of Mexico by the Mississippi now is judged to be only 50% of that of a century ago. Q16.27 Can you think of a couple of reasons why there has been such a huge decrease in the amount of sediment within the lower Mississippi? One reason is improved tillage practices, minimizing erosion of croplands. Hint: The other reason has to do with projects within the river and its tributaries.
