Social Studies Chapter 1

long series of loops meander
wet grasslands formed by river sediment deposited along the coast coastal marshes
this geologic formation usually looks like a birds foot or a fan delta
the floodplains surrounding the Mississippi River eroded, leaving the old riverbeds as elevated ridges called terrace
created after a river abandons its delta barrier islands
elevated strips of land along a riverbank natural levee
when the current slows along the inside of the next meander, the sediment falls to the bottom of the river, creating a point bar
an underwater barrier of mud that interferes with the river's current bar
these strange formations are caused by pressure and explode as a geyser in the air mud lump
fresh and saltwater mixed brackish
in French this term means "place of oaks" cheniers
example of a barrier island Grand Isle
serves as a reservoir to hold excess water until the river can move it away to the Gulf floodplain
