Nebraska Geological Society


The field trip will provide an overview of the geology and hydrogeology of northeast Nebraska, the groundwater quality and quantity issues unique to the region, and ongoing work relating to water quality and geologic (hydrostratigraphic) framework, particularly involving remote sensing technology. This program will be comprised of an auto tour with two stops on Saturday October 16  to examine the Spencer Dam site and several locations in Niobrara State Park. Five stops on Sunday, October 17  will see participants visiting water and aquifer framework projects in the region, as well as locations with outstanding geology and features from geological hazards (flooding and landslides). Four stops on Monday, October 18 will complete the trip by examining fresh cut rock faces in a quarry, a historical site with geological significance, and will conclude by examining older stratigraphy found in Ponca State Park and an outcrop of Dakota Sandstone in Homer, NE.
