Alluvial terraces were studied in several major river basins in eastern Wyoming. Three terraces are present along nearly all the streams and large tributaries. There are several extensive dissected erosion surfaces in the area, but these are much older than, and stand well above, the recent alluvial terraces with which this report is three alluvial terraces stand respectively.

Abstract. A Frequently quoted definition of a flood plain is that of Rice (, p. ): ‘a strip of relatively smooth land bordering a stream [and] overflowed in times of high water’.

Valley flats which would usually be considered flood plains, on this definition, include features formed by such processes as landslides and the building of low-angle fans.

The Headgate Draw SDI study site is located approximately 17 km south of Arvada, Wyoming at the confluence of Crazy Woman Creek and the Powder River ().Land use in the study area can be described mostly as improved pasture seeded with mixed grass and alfalfa grown under natural rainfall conditions (Prink et al., ).The study site encompasses six alfalfa fields and covers an.

Debris-flow and flood events following the fires provided facies models for interpreting the stratigraphic record of fire-related sedimentation within valley-side alluvial fans of Soda Butte Creek.
