The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Environment and the River: Maps of the Mississippi.

Craig, William J. and William S. Anderson.

The Mississippi River's watershed encompasses the middle two-fifths of the United States. Anything that fouls the environment in this area is proclaimed by changes in the river itself, so the river serves as an environmental barometer for the core of the nation. Collected here is a baseline of environmental data on the river in 1991. The data are collected in maps that give a picture of the current level of environmental quality, activities that affect the environment, and human ability to cope with environmental issues.
