      The Mississippi River Valley is a vital migration corridor for 40 percent of North America’s waterfowl and 60 percent of its bird species. Freshwater habitats in the Upper Mississippi River basin support 25 percent of all fish species in North America, including the paddlefish, a . The imprint of glacial isostatic adjustment has long been recognized in shoreline elevations of oceans and proglacial lakes, but to date, its signature has not been identified in river long profiles. Here, we reveal that the buried bedrock valley floor of the upper Mississippi River exhibits a m-deep, km-long overdeepening that we interpret to be a partial cast of the Laurentide Ice.
