Figure 4. Schematic cross section of terraces and terrace-fills along lower Kings Creek at the Konza Prairie Biological Station. Only terraces numbered 1 and 2 are visible in Figure 3 (the photograph of the cutbank). Terrace number 3 is a cut terrace, cut into sediments of the alluvial fill beneath terrace 2, terrace number 4 is a small fill terrace, and point-bar gravel is the modern sediment being deposited along Kings Creek. Aggradations A and B are marked with large arrows.
