... postdepositional changes in slope can be determined. Miocene to earliest Pliocene gravels of the Ogallala Group (17.5–5 Ma) cap the tablelands, which currently tilt down to the east at slopes as great as 10 −2 . However, paleohydraulic analysis of the Ogallala gravels indicates depositional slopes of 10 −3 to 10...
