Abstract:
This data set consists of a digital glacial geology map of the Toolik and upper Kuparuk River region, Alaska, USA. The map covers a 740 km² area on Alaska's North Slope, in the northern foothills of the Brooks Range. The map contains polygon and line features, annotation, and legends and is distributed as an ArcInfo GIS interchange (.e00) file or shapefiles. The data set describes substrate only and does not include topographic, hydrographic, or cultural features.
