60 Years of Remeandering of a River

From the folks at Little River Research & Design comes a nice video showing a sequence of aerial photography over the course of 60 years demonstrating the meandering of the Grand River in northern Missouri. The channel had actually been straightened and this shows how it “remeandered.”

 

The latest image used in the video is from 1996 and I’d be curious to see what more has happened in the system in the 15 years since then.
