      Nebraska Geography. The Great Plains of North America slope east from the Rocky Mountains, extending south from Canada, through Nebraska, and on into Texas.. The rolling plains (hills) of eastern Nebraska (farm country) are crisscrossed by numerous small rivers and the central plains, the land is more rugged and quite hilly. In western Nebraska much of the land is blanketed by the. Sedimentology and Stratigraphy of the Upper Pennsylvanian – Lower Permian Systems of Western Nebraska, USA Chesney L.

Geologic History of the Sand Hills Region. The Nebraska Sand Hills is the largest sand dune covered area in North America, with some of the largest dunes stretching up to 32 kilometers in length and extending to heights of meters (Schmeisser et al.

; Bleed and Flowerday ). Thinking Like a Dune Field 7 dubbed a "Desert in Disguise" (Sletto ), the Sand Hills lost their grass cover and became fully active several times within the l years. Like the Sand Hills, the Gobi of central Asia is situated at high latitude in the core of a large continent.

The Sand Hills seen in this simulated natural-color image from NASA's Terra spacecraft cover about a quarter of the state of Nebraska.

These ancient sand dunes are from the Pleistocene Epoch (the geologic time period spanning about million to ab years ago). REFERENCES Ahlbrandt, T.S., Fryberger, S.G., Hanley, J.H., and Bradbury, J.P.,Geologic and paleoecologic studies of the Nebraska Sand Hills: U.S.

The remainder of the state has been published atinbut current mapping is being done on the surface geology, rather than bedrock.

The Nebraska Sand Hills region is a giant dune field that is presently stabilized by prairie vegetation. During numerous severe droughts within the l years, the dunes have lost their plant cover and have migrated freely. Wetlands between dunes are extensive in the central Sand Hills and are connected to the High Plains (Ogallala) by: Explore Nebraska Archeology Sand Hills Archeology Nebraska State Historical Society.
