Alluvial fans as records of Holocene sediment yield in the central Great Plains of southwest Nebraska

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



On alluvial fans, increased rates of sedimentation are directly related to increased sediment yields from their watersheds. Since well developed soils imply prolonged landscape stability, soils that are buried by alluvial-fan deposits are evidence of a shift, at least locally, toward increased sediment yields. The objective of this paper is to propose a Holocene history of sediment yield increases in the central Great Plains based on the record that buried alluvial-fan soils provide
