Geomorphology in the Ozark National Scenic Riverways: Observations and Opportunities

Author(s): Roger T. Saucier

Year: 1980


During the period 10 to 13 September 1980, the writer was afforded the opportunity of a brief reconnaissance of portions of the Ozark River Hays in Shannon County, Missouri. Physiographic features, often in association with archeological sites, were pointed out and discussed by personnel of the Midwest Archeological Center, National Park Service, and the Southeast Missouri Field Station, Southwest Missouri State University, at the Akers Ferry, Pulltite, Round Spring, Alley Spring, Owls Bend, Blue Spring, and Log Yard localities along the Current River and Jacks Fork. The purposes of the reconnaissance were to gain first-hand familiarity with the area, provide preliminary observations and opinions on the origin and history of landforms important in the area's prehistoric occupation, and to assess the potential for the contribution of geomorphology to paleo-environmental reconstructions.
