The meanders of the Mississippi River over time have produced a large floodplain stretching from Cairo, IL down to New Orleans. The floodplain is created by water-deposited sediment both during flood episodes when the river overflows its banks, and normally as the channels change their position around the floodplain over time. The white lines are man-made levees. At the center-right is Lake Whittington, an oxbow lake in an old meander. Arkansas City is in the lower left of the image.
