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 and correspond to subdirectories within the data distribution package. The metadata layer provides an FGDC metadata file and may include other documentation files. Attribute information for each data layer is described in this metadata file under the "Entity_and_Attribute_Information" section. Data layer contents:
 >border: Outline of the study area
 >arar-summary-data-locations: Identification numbers, coordinates, sample descriptions, and summary ages of each sample
 >step-heating-data: Power output levels and resultant measurements from each sample run

Metadata
