Supplemental Information

The DGGS metadata standard extends the FGDC standard to include elements that are required to facilitate our internal data management. These elements, referred to as "layers," group and describe files that have intrinsic logical or topological relationships. Layers are named to correspond with the name(s) of the file(s). This dataset is described as a single layer titled:
 >cook-inlet-palynology: table listing the coordinates,geologic units, and geologic age determinations of samples collected in the Cook Inlet study area


Metadata is the data about the data and answers "Who, what, when, where, how and why?" about the dataset. Please see the DGGS Metadata README page for information about our metadata.
