Purpose

Together with the accompanying text file (scgeo.txt), this digitalmap database provides current information on the Quaternary geologyof the area covered. The database delineates map units that areidentified by general age and lithology following the compilationsources. One bedrock unit, the Santa Clara formation, isdifferentiated but the other bedrock units are combined and are notidentified. More specific information about the units may beavailable in the original Open-file reports.
