Supplemental Information

The layers listed below are present as ArcGIS shape files. To enhance print quality, this publication utilized a vector topography data set (released as an add-on to the DGGS publication PIR 2002-2). The topography data set is not included with this release. Attribute information for the following layers (entities) is included in this metadata file under the "Entity_and_Attribution_Information" section. Each layer is listed and described in detail under its own heading starting "Entity_Type_Label." Basic unit information is also included in the geologic unit code set file "PR121_codeset.pdf". Layers include:
 >moraines_polygon: polygon indicating the location of a prominent end moraine
 >stations_point: radiocarbon sample locality
 >surfgeology_arc: geologic unit contacts
 >surfgeology_polygon: geologic unit polygons
 >symbols_arc: symbols depicting locations of morainal crests, meltwater drainage channels, and glacial flow direction
 >symbols_point: symbols showing relative motion and/or orientation of geomorphic features
