Mississippi River Science Forum
The Mississippi River is a multi-faceted, complex resource in the United States that needs a comprehensive and coordinated plan to address science and management needs. As part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2022 (H.R. 2471), the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) was asked to host a Mississippi River Science Forum in 2023. We hope to share current science, identify data gaps and areas of concern, and to prioritize next steps related to goals of improving water quality, restoring habitat and natural systems, improving navigation, eliminating aquatic invasive species, and building local resilience to natural disasters.
Please see the attached agenda for a listing of the great group of speakers that have agreed to address Mississippi River science from their agency’s perspective.
Because the Forum is a Microsoft Teams Live event, there will be no formal registration. Here are the links to each day’s venues:
