Ohio River Research Guide

Ohio River Bibliography:

Scope

 

As one of the most critical water resources in the Midwest, information regarding the Ohio River spans a large amount of time and a multitude of disciplines. This bibliography was designed to support students and researchers primarily in the fields of Geography and Geology but, due to the diversity of the topic and the multidisciplinary nature of Geographic and Geological research, this bibliography seeks to synthesize resources (including maps) from multiple fields into a starting place for a multitude of potential inquiries regarding the Ohio River and its Basin in areas including:

·         Geography and Navigation

·         Environmental Affairs Research

·         Sedimentology and Surficial Geology

·         Structural Geology and Stratigraphy

·         Hydrology 

 This resource was NOT designed to be a comprehensive bibliography as much as it is a research guide to aid researchers in  their own searches.
