This dataset is a compilation of six databases described in Haj, A.E., Soller, D.R., Reddy, J.E., Kauffman, L.J., Yager, R.M., and Buchwald, C.A., 2018, Hydrogeologic framework for characterization and occurrence of confined and unconfined aquifers in quaternary sediments in the glaciated conterminous United States - A digital map compilation and database: U.S. Geological Survey Data Series 1090, 31 p., https://doi.org/10.3133/ds1090. The six databases include: 1) Glacial Environments and Surficial Sediments (GESS) Geodatabase for the Glaciated, Conterminous United States, 2) Hydrogeologic Terranes for Glaciated Conterminous United States, 3) Bedrock Lithology for Glaciated Conterminous United States, 4) Groundwater Usage for Public Supply by County in the Glaciated Conterminous United States, 5) Lithologic Logs in the Glaciated Conterminous United States, and 6) Coarse-stratified drift aquifers in the Northeastern Glaciated United States.
