Mississippi River Delta - Laser Cut Wood Map
This is our beautifully detailed, laser engraved and precision cut map of Mississippi River Delta with the following information carved into it:
For 7,000 years, the Mississippi River has snaked across southern Louisiana, depositing sediment from 31 states and 2 Canadian provinces across its delta. As sediment accumulated under water, plant communities began to develop, trapping more sediment and building land.
Louisiana’s Lower Mississippi River and its proximity to the American Midwest via a 14,500-mile inland waterway system provide for the movement of cargoes such as steel, rubber, coffee, containers and manufactured goods.
River pilots climb onto moving ships via a 30-foot rope ladder leading up the side of the hull from the deck of a pilot boat. This can be a dangerous undertaking, with the ship and pilot boat pitching back and forth and the ladder swinging from the ship. Once on board, a pilot acts as advisor to the captain, setting the ship’s course and speed.
