Along the Mississippi River there are many Orthofluvial Zones. The river's flow creates orthrofluvial zones where sediment is carried through the river and is deposited into certain locations and then becomes sessile. So sediment builds and builds until there is a stable land mass that can become to home to shrubbery and grasses. The river will continue to deposit sediment into these zones and create a growing, thriving ecosystem. However, these zones can be altered by significant natural conditions such as flooding, trees falling, tornados, etc.
