LineageThis coverage is reselect of polygons from the MGS' surficial geology coverage. 'alvrech' contains all alluvial areas from this coverage, as well as selected organic deposits. Most organic deposits within the area dominated by stagnant ice deposits (the northwestern portion of the county) are excluded. See 'Entity and Attribute Information' (below) for a listing of the MGSCODE values that were included in this selection.
