Theme: Science
Views: 42
Openness rating:

This dataset contains a coverage for important mapped and digitised limits of glacial erratic carriages across Ireland.

The map forms part of the GSI Quaternary Map series. The Erratic Carriage Sink is an arc feature class made up of Erratic limit and Inferred Erratic Path features.

Data recorded on the maps includes the lithology of the erratic rocks, an the relevant academic paper references where the data were sourced.

The map together with the catalogue constitute the dataset

Provenance information 1. Filenames: ERRATIC_CARRIAGE_SINK.shp Date (30/11/2015) Originator -Quaternary & Geotechnical Section, Geological Survey of Ireland Nature of change/update to data - There is an ongoing programme of digitizing all archival Quaternary data held by the GSI. Methodology - The erratic limit and inferred erratic files have been compiled from a variety of sources, including academic papers, and the feature outlines were then drawn on OSi Colour Aerial Photography.
