Loess-filled depressions are common in eastern Nebraska, but little is known about the soil-forming processes associated with these features.  The goals of this study are to evaluate the variation of soil horizons within depressions, the expression of E horizons, and evidence of recent sedimentation.  There are opportunities for the student researcher to be involved in field sampling and description of soils, as well as laboratory analysis.
