Description: The portion of Arkansas treated in this report is a former flood plain of Mississippi River, through which the Arkansas, the White, the Mississippi, and other rivers have cut new channels and developed a later flood plain at a lower level. The soils and topography differ accordingly on the two sites. The present flood plains, or bottoms, are generally flat; wheareas the earlier flood plains, or terraces, are slightly undulating, and because they are about 10 to 20 feet higher they are usually better drained than the bottoms. Altogether, this area (Forest Survey Unit Arkansas #1) covers some 5 3/4 million acres, including all or parts of 19 counties, as shown in figure 1.
