Soil in this particular ecological site within the Great Plains mixed-grass prairie is considered stabilized sand dunes. In the presence of overgrazing with the associated removal of vegetation, this site is susceptible to wind erosion. However, after a prescribed fire under normal soil moisture conditions, rapid regrowth of the vegetation limits this threat.
