Extracted (US9_EXT) sediment texture data from lab-based, numeric analyses.
Parsed (US9_PRS) sediment texture data mined from logs, descriptions, and notes.
Calculated (US9_CLC) sediment texture data calculated or estimated by standard derivative equations.
Combined (US9_ONE) a single but less duplicative data coverage that combines EXT, PRS, and CLC data.
Facies (US9_FAC) combined components and facies information.
Components (US9_CMP) individual component and feature information.
