Thickness model of unconsolidated deposits

The thickness model of unconsolidated deposits is a digital data set that describes the thickness of the unconsolidated deposits. This product is derived from the bedrock elevation model. The subtraction of the bedrock surface from the terrain surface (digital height model, DHM25) gives the thickness of unconsolidated deposits. 3D models represent a simplification of the real geological settings. The user acknowledges that the authors have taken every reasonable effort to ensure that information contained in the presented 3D geological model is as accurate as possible. There is no guarantee that the given data related to a definite point in the subsurface is accurate. Under no circumstances will the publisher be liable for any loss or damage of a material or immaterial nature arising from access to, use or non-use of published information, or from misuse or technical breakdown.
