Surface Flow Characteristics

Arkansas is largely influenced by the humid subtropical climate that causes frequent heavy rainfall and occasional flooding, particularly in the spring. Major rivers like the Mississippi, Arkansas, and White Rivers are critical in the state's hydrology. Reservoirs and dams, such as Greers Ferry Lake and Bull Shoals Dam, also play an important role in water management and hydroelectric power generation. The Ozark Plateau region in northern Arkansas experiences greater precipitation and snowpack, which contributes to river flows in the region. However, the state has also been experiencing drought conditions in recent years, particularly in the western and southern parts of the state. Overall, Arkansas' hydrology is complex and constantly evolving, influenced by a variety of factors including climate, geography, and human activity.
