Abstract

"This thesis is based upon a study of the larger springs of the Ozark Region of Missouri and is designed to answer many requests for information about the large springs.

Special studies were made to determine the probable location and approximate area of the drainage areas of the large springs (previous writers have referred to the drainage areas as being “very large" or "enormous", apparently, without any very definite idea as to the extent or the drainage areas). The average run-off per square mile from the assumed drainage area, herein called the "spring factor", was determined for the largest springs.

A special study was made of the stream piracy from the Meramec and Black River Basins by large springs in the Current River Basin. It is the Author's belief that approximately one hundred and thirty square miles of drainage area assigned to the Meramec Basin, and approximately sixty square miles of drainage area assigned to the Black River Basin should be assigned to the Current River drainage area.

The main body of the thesis is made up of the descriptions or the various springs, with descriptions of the probable location, nature of, and extent of the drainage area of each of the larger springs "--Introduction, page 3.
