Volunteer, can apply for UCARE 18-19
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.
