Image Caption:
Konza Prairie lead-in shot: Konza Prairie (arrow) lies east of
the Rockies (top left-- Pueblo-P), south of the Platte River (PR)
and west of the Missouri River (MR). Within northeast Kansas,
the Konza Prairie is best located with respect to two close-
spaced, elongated reservoirs, Milford Res. (M) and Tuttle Creek
Res. (T). It lies south of the Kansas River in the non-
agricultural landscapes of the northern Flint Hills (light brown
areas-FH) Rivers and cities are less help in locating Konza
Prairie: Topeka, Kansas (TK) on the Kansas River (K) and Wichi-
ta, Kansas (WK) are major nearby cities. Kansas City (KC) is
best located by the converging contrails--it can also be located
at the confluence of the Missouri (MR) and Kansas Rivers (K).
