Geologic maps often have a geologic cross section that represents a vertical slice of subsurface rock layers through a designated area (shown: geologic cross section, Saline County). Geologic maps depict bedrock—the solid rock at the earth's surface or directly beneath the vegetation, soil, and thin deposits of unconsolidated material.

This investigation is essentially a geomorphological study of the lower Platte River Valley area in eastern Nebraska. The area comprises Saunders, Dodge, Washington, Douglas, Sarpy, and Cass counties. The area defined above is one of the most critically located of any for the study of the post-Kansan history of the lower Platte River Valley.

Aspects of the Platte River in south-central Nebraska were examined at three scales. At the local scale, two quadrangles were mapped that show the main geomorphic elements of the Platte River Valley. At an intermediate scale, the distribution of alluvial units in the Platte River Valley was mapped.

At a regional scale, the geologic history of the Front Range and adjacent depositional areas and. A map of Wyoming’s watersheds shows the North Platte River basin, in the southeast corner of the state, shaped like a balled fist with its index finger pointing west toward Utah, California and Oregon.

The North Platte River makes the fist of the hand. The river flows north into Wyoming from Colorado and sweeps east and south in a horseshoe bend nearly miles long, draining the entire.

The Platte River (/ p l æ t /) is a major river in the State of is about mi ( km) long; measured to its farthest source via its tributary the North Platte River, it flows for over 1, miles (1, km).The Platte River is a tributary of the Missouri River, which itself is a tributary of the Mississippi River which flows to the Gulf of Mexico.

There is an extensive local sand-hill area along the south side of the valley of North Platte River, on the slopes south of Camp Clarke, which extends as far eastward as the vicinity of Courthouse Rock, The width of this belt is but 5 miles at most, and its length about 15 miles.

An area of smaller size lies just west of Chimney Rock.

A few sand ridges are also found on the Elkhorn. North of the Platte, from about the mouth of the Calamus on to the Niobrara, they cover much larger areas. They are also found over a limited area north of the Niobrara.

Hayden estimated the area of the sand hills at 20, square miles.
