    Until the ice sheets pushed down into North Dakota (about 2 ½ million years ago), all the rivers in North Dakota flowed north and drained into Hudson Bay. Today, the Red River, the Mouse (Souris) River, the Sheyenne River, and their tributaries flow north. The Missouri River and the James River flow south to the Mississippi River. PLEISTOCENE GEOLOGY OF EASTERN SOUTH DAKOTA The glaciated part of the State of South Dakota has an area of ab square miles that constitutes almost the entire eastern half of the State. It is underlain principally by flat- separated by the James River lowland, elongate from north to south. The extreme relief of the region is Cited by:

    Notice - The USGS Water Resources Mission Area's priority is to maintain the safety and well-being of our communities, including providing critical situational awareness in times of flooding in all 50 U.S. states and additional territories. Our hydrologic monitoring stations continue to send data in near real-time to NWISWeb, and we are continuing critical water monitoring activities to. The Souris Valley flood was one of the largest natural disasters in North Dakota history. Learn more about this event and the response and recovery efforts that followed.

    ABOUT SOURIS, NORTH DAKOTA. ESTABLISHED IN Souris, North Dakota is located in North Central North Dakota. Souris is located very close to the United States/Canada border, in fact Souris is located 6 miles South of the United States/Canada border. Souris has a current population of 58 residents according to the US Census. Climate of North Dakota Topographic Features- North Dakota is subdivided into four main physiographic regions: the Great Plains, the Missouri Coteau, the Glaciated Plains, and the Red River Valley. Southwestern North Dakota is part of the relatively flat Great Plains which slope gently westward toward the Rocky Size: 36KB.

The geology of North Dakota includes thick sequences oil and coal bearing sedimentary rocks formed in shallow seas in the Paleozoic and Mesozoic, as well as terrestrial deposits from the Cenozoic on top of ancient Precambrian crystalline basement rocks.

The state has extensive oil and gas, sand and gravel, coal, groundwater and other natural resources. This is a generalized topographic map of North Dakota. It shows elevation trends across the state.

North Dakota's Geologic Legacy is the story of the landscape why it looks like it does and how it formed.

Souris River, tributary of the Assiniboine River, in Saskatchewan and Manitoba (Canada) and North Dakota (U.S.). Rising in southeastern Saskatchewan, it receives drainage from Moose Mountain and Coteau du Missouri and flows southeastward into North Dakota.

It then bends northward to reenter Canada.

The Minot area is in the north-central part of North Dakota and includes part of the Souris River valley. The region is covered by glacial drift of late Wisconsin age except in small areas where the Fort Union Formation of Tertiary age crops out. Thickness of the drift is controlled by the topography of the bedrock.

In places the drift is more than feet thick, but it averages about. The Mouse River starts in Canada and flows back into Canada. The French word for “mouse” is “souris,” and in Canada the river is named the Souris River. It is the same river that we call the Mouse River in North Dakota.

At times this river has overflowed its banks causing flooding in the city of Minot and other places along its way. Mouse/Souris River Basin The Mouse River, or the Souris River as it is known in Canada, originates in southeast Saskatchewan near the city of Wayburn.

From there, the Mouse River meanders miles through North Dakota, entering near Sherwood, then flowing through Minot, to its southernmost point at Velva, North Dakota.
