This report explains the results of "The Missouri River Computerized Data Bank." It contains all known data collected on the Missouri River beginning in the mid-1930's.
It should be noted that only 10% of the included data has been verified, i.e. has been checked against the source document. A bounds check was performed by the computer on each piece of data for upper and lower limits established for each type of data. Any potential user of these data should be aware of this fact and that, on the average, 1 piece of data out of 200 may be in error.
These data are now in a format which should prove quite usable to the scientific community and easily obtainable.
It has been a pleasure to work on this study and to be of assistance to the Corps of Engineers in carrying out their mission.
