|Qaa||ACTIVE-FLOODPLAIN ALLUVIUM—Chiefly well-sorted and well-stratified layers and lenses of silt, sand, and polymictic gravel (pebbles and cobbles) comprising river bars subject to frequent inundations by streams|
|Qai||INACTIVE-FLOODPLAIN ALLUVIUM—Chiefly 10 to 20 ft of overbank silty sand and sandy silt overlying gravelly, polymictic riverbed sand and sandy gravel beneath surfaces subject to stream flooding at least as often as once or twice every century (Mason and Begét, 1991); may include more than one surface;|
|Qab||ABANDONED-FLOODPLAIN ALLUVIUM—Chiefly 10 to 20 ft of overbank sandy silt and silty sand overlying sandy, polymictic riverbed gravel beneath surfaces with widespread lowland loess and local sand dunes and subject to stream flooding about once every 500 to 1,000 years;|
|Qao||UNDIFFERENTIATED GLACIAL AND NONGLACIAL ALLUVIUM—Primarily coarse, polymictic gravel and sand deposited by former proglacial streams of the Delta glaciation and locally covered along courses of nonglacial streams by postglacial alluvium;|
|Qat||STREAM-TERRACE ALLUVIUM—Chiefly 4 to more than 20 ft of organic sandy silt and silty sand overlying well-sorted, polymictic sand and gravel beneath stream terrace treads no longer subject to inundations by the stream that deposited the alluvium;|
|Qcf||MIXED COLLUVIUM AND ALLUVIAL DEPOSITS—Primarily fan-shaped, massive to poorly stratified fine material mixed with polymictic pebble and cobble gravel laid down by small, ephemeral streams draining glacial and eolian-cover deposits;|
|Qel||LOESS—Silt with up to 15 percent very fine sand carried by winds and deposited as a blanket over the downwind topography|
|Qer||RETRANSPORTED LOESS AND LOWLAND SILT—Chiefly organic silt with variable amounts of sand and lenses of locally derived gravel that are deposited by slope runoff and seasonal streams draining bedrock slopes covered by upland silt;|
|Qes||DUNE SAND—Chiefly fine eolian sand with trace amounts (2 to 16 percent) of silt;|
|Qgdo||TILL AND ASSOCIATED MORAINAL DEPOSITS OF DELTA GLACIATION—Heterogeneous, nonstratified, polymictic pebble–cobble gravel with some sand and silt and few to numerous subangular to subrounded boulders deposited by glacial ice;|
|Qgfo||OUTWASH OF DELTA GLACIATION|
|Qgfy||OUTWASH OF DONNELLY GLACIATION|
|Qlr||DEPOSITS OF ICE-SHOVED RAMPARTS—Chiefly well-sorted and complexly deformed polymictic pebble–cobble gravel with some medium to coarse sand pushed into a system of double 3- to 5-ft-high ridges around the northwestern margin of Quartz Lake by wind-driven;|
|Qp||SWAMP DEPOSIT—Primarily fibrous and locally woody autochthonous peat with organic silt and sand deposited in lowland sites (Kreig and Reger, 1982); up to 8 ft thick; discontinuously to continuously frozen with moderate to high ice content;|
|Pzs||QUARTZITE AND SCHIST—Chiefly quartzite with common quartz–mica schist and lesser feldspathic quartzite; generally garnetiferous, locally actinolitic and gneissic;|
|PzpCa||AUGEN GNEISS AND BIOTITE GNEISS—Chiefly medium- to coarse-grained, foliated and typically mylonitic augen gneiss with subordinate augen schist and biotite gneiss of amphibolite metamorphic facies in bedrock uplands of southern Yukon–Tanana terrane;|
|PzpCg||QUARTZ–BIOTITE GNEISS—Medium-grained, well-foliated and banded to massive gneiss interbedded with quartzite in bedrock uplands of the southern Yukon–Tanana terrane;|
