DescriptionThe North Arkansas Delta survey unit includes the flood plains of the Mississippi River and its principal tributaries between Helena, Arkansas, and Cape Girardeau, Missouri, with boundaries as shown in figure 1. Although chiefly in Arkansas, it includes portions of Missouri, Tennessee, and Kentucky. A conspicuous topographic feature is Crowley's Ridge, a narrow elevation rising some 200 feet above the general level of the surrounding plain and extending about 180 miles from Helena, Ark., to the vicinity of Advance, Mo. elsewhere the relief is remarkably uniform, seldom varying locally more than 20 feet, with drainage generally to the southward.
