A brief summary of the United States Coast Guard Aids to Navigation system used on the Missouri River is.   The Mississippi River is a dynamic and changing river.

The Mississippi is a very curvy, knowns as meandering, river. Navigation Charts are 8½” x 14” scaled color maps that indicate important navigation features of special interest. Features shown on the charts include channel sailing line, U.S. navigation lights, daymarks, arrival point marks for locks, normal pool elevations, mouth of tributary streams, location of bars, channel buoys, bridges, aerial and submarine crossings, docks, terminals, landings.
