Abstract

This dataset presents OSL and 14C data obtained for sedimentary samples in the Mississippi Delta for the investigation about the change in the composition and pathyway of organic carbon carried by the Lower Mississippi River, and the centerline of the Lower Mississippi River for the investigation about migration of the river between 1970s and 2019.
