Abstract : The objective of this study is to quantify and analyze certain parameters descriptive of the biological environment of 29 alternative sites along the Mississippi River selected by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Louis District, as potential locations for a new harbor facility. The goal of this effort was to rank the sites in terms of their biological sensitivity; selection of the best harbor location will require more detailed studies. (Author)
