Environmental Setting of the Yellowstone River Basin, Montana, North Dakota, and Wyoming

Ronald Zelt, U.S. Geological Survey

This U.S. Geological Survey report describes the natural and anthropogenic factors believed to influence water quality in the Yellowstone River Basin. Topics include physiography, climate, geology, vegetation, surface water, stream ecology, groundwater, anthropogenic factors, integrated environmental settings, and others. Text is supported by numerous maps, graphs, charts, diagrams, and tables.
