      Kansas City (abbreviated KC or KCMO) is the largest city in the U.S. state of Missouri by population and area. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the city had an estimated population of , in , making it the 38th most-populous city in the United is the most populated municipality and historic core city of the Kansas City metropolitan area, which straddles the Kansas Country: United States. The Missouri River and the Red River are reminders of an ancient past when geological forces brought immense changes to the landscape over a period of millions of years. The long-ago processes of glaciation, erosion, and sedimentation made the Red River Valley one of the most productive agricultural regions in the world.

      GEOLOGY L Field Methods in Earth and Environmental Science Credits: 3. A field-based course covering basic methods used by earth scientists for environmental, geographic, and geologic investigations. Students will collect field data at off-campus sites, conduct periodic monitoring, and analyze samples using departmental and personal instrumentation. The region of deep loess in Iowa coincides closely with the wide north-south segment of the Missouri River valley, roughly from Sioux City to Kansas City. It was from this broad valley that windborne silts were swept aloft from floodplains clogged with outwash brought south by seasonally swollen floods of glacial meltwater.

The Missouri River Valley outlines the journey of the Missouri River from its headwaters where the Madison, Jefferson and Gallatin Rivers flow together in Montana to its confluence with the Mississippi River in the State of 2, miles (3, km) long the valley drains one-sixth of the United States, and is the longest river valley on the North American continent.

The geology of the Missouri River Valley at Kansas City is interpreted from the borehole and construction site data along the route of the Trans-Missouri River Tunnel, a km long water tunnel constructed at a depth of m below the floodplain of the Missouri River.

The data from the site. The Kansas River, also known as the Kaw, is a river in northeastern Kansas in the United is the southwestern-most part of the Missouri River drainage, which is in turn the northwestern-most portion of the extensive Mississippi River drainage.

Its two names both come from the Kanza (Kaw) people who once inhabited the area; Kansas was one of the anglicizations of the French Country: United States.

A geologic cross section of the Missouri River Valley at Kansas City, Missouri [] Gentile, Richard J. Rolla, Mo. (P.O. BoxRolla ): Missouri Dept. of Natural Resources, Division of Geology and Land Survey, The U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the city of Kansas City, Missouri, began a study in of the lower Blue River in Kansas City, Missouri, from Gregory Boulevard to the mouth at the Missouri River to determine the estimated extent of flood inundation in the Blue River valley from flooding on the lower Blue River and from.

Major levees in the Kansas City Missouri area begin to overtop. The levee in the Birmingham Unit begins to be overtopped. Gaps in the levees and floodwalls of the East Bottoms area must be closed. Gaps in the levees and floodwalls at North Kansas City must be closed.

Bathymetric and velocimetric surveys at highway bridges crossing the Missouri River between Kansas City and St. Louis, Missouri, May 22–31, Bathymetric and velocimetric data were collected by the U.S.

Geological Survey, in cooperation with the Missouri Department of Transportation, near 10 bridges at 9 highway crossings of the Missouri. The rock landing speeded up the development of Kansas City by 2 or 3 decades and is testimony to the benefit that geology has contributed to the building of a city.

River boat landings and wagon trails, the location of the rock landing on the South bank of the Missouri River is shown with a star. The Missouri flows south to the city of Omaha where it receives its longest tributary, the Platte River, from the west.

Downstream, it begins to define the Nebraska–Missouri border, then flows between Missouri and Kansas. The Missouri swings east at Kansas City, where the Kansas River enters from the west, and so on into north-central Missouri.The subsurface geology of the Missouri River Valley at Kansas City is represented in cross-sectional profile to a depth of ft ( m) from the borehole and construction site data along the alignment of the mi ( km) long Trans–Missouri River Water : Richard J.

Gentile, Richard L. Moberly, Sharon K. Barnes.A cross section of Kansas reveals that the surface topography of the state dips gently eastward.

However, examination of the rocks underlyingthe Flint Hills shows an overall tendency to dip gently to the west and northwest (Zeller, ), and the landscape in the Flint Hills is at a higher elevation than surrounding areas, both eastward and.
