Mittlestets Meander

LOOKING Closer

Located on the University of Nebraska–Lincoln’s Gudmundsen Sandhills Laboratory, this camera captures the winding stream of a branch of the Middle Loup River as it cuts through the Nebraska Sandhills. “Mick’s Slide” is in the back of the frame and is a blowout of sand in the hillside. “Mick’s Slide” has taught UNL researchers much about the geology and evolution of the Nebraska Sandhills, the largest stabilized sand dune region in the hemisphere. This camera is tied to Aaron Middlestet and his team doing research studying streamflow. He is a UNL assistant professor in Biosystems Engineering.
