      Summary and Conclusions. The stratigraphy of loess deposits which have been investigated on Fort Riley exhibits the same sequence of loess units and intercalated buried soils as is found elsewhere in the region, but adds detail unique to the reservation. It is usually divided into Early, Middle, and Late periods, although archaeologists have assigned different absolute timespans to each. For example, those who focus on the western Great Plains generally equate the Early Archaic with the mid-Holocene climatic maximum (Atlantic, Hypsithermal, or .

[Boulder, Colo.]: Geological Society of America, (OCoLC) Material Type: Internet resource: Document Type: Book, Internet Resource: All Authors / Contributors: Roger Y Anderson; Douglas W Kirkland. The early Pleistocene (Blancan) Rita Blanca lake deposits in the north-western part of the Panhandle of Texas occupy a deflation basin cut through the caprock of the Pliocene Ogallala Group.

During its maximum development, Rita Blanca lake had an elliptical shape with a north-south length of about 6 miles and a breadth of about miles. / PLEISTOCENE AND RECENT ENVIRONMENTS OF THE CENTRAL GREAT PLAINS, University of Kansas SP 3, Lawrence,cl, pages, - 2 - $ 55 Erwin, D.

/ THE GREAT PALEOZOIC CRISIS: Life and Death in the Permian, New York,pb, pages, - 1 - $ Paleoecology is the study of the interaction of ancient plants and animals with each other and with their physicochemical environment. The stratigraphic and paleontologic records of lakes, rivers, ponds, swamps, and similar aquatic environments permit the paleoecologist to study the ecological and environmental interactions and the evolution of inland aquatic ecosystems through long intervals.

Within the Great Plains, one of the highest concentrations of Paleoindian sites and research is on the Southern High Plains of northwestern Texas and eastern New Mexico (figs.

). The first excavations at the Clovis site, New Mexico, just a few years after the Folsom finds, began one of the longest traditions of Paleoindian. The study of ancient lake deposits has been helped immeasurably by limnologists, sedimentologists, and geochemists, who make observations on active lakes, and by geologists, who have concerned themselves with Pleistocene lakes and their Holocene residues.

The Lubbock Lake Landmark is located on the Southern High Plains of Texas in Yellowhouse Draw that is part of the upper Brazos River basin. The Late Pleistocene and Early Holocene Lubbock Lake fish assemblages represent the first known Quaternary paleoichthyofauna for the Southern High by: 1.

The Late Quaternary archeological and paleoenvironmental records of the Southern High Plains are well preserved in the draws, dunes, and lake basins of the region.

The fill in the draws historically is most closely linked to the human history of the region because several nowrenowned archeological sites have been discovered in these by: 7. During the Early Pleistocene, a pure C 3 plant ecosystem is observed from the caves of Juyuandong (early Early Pleistocene) and Longgudong (also known as "Longgu Cave") (middle Early Pleistocene.

The High Plains aquifer, one of the largest freshwater aquifers in the world, is the primary source of potable and irrigation waters in the central Great Plains and underpins much of the region’s economy (Fig.

1).The aquifer provides ~30% of irrigation waters for the United States and drinking water for 82% of the population living within the aquifer boundary (Dennehy, ).
