Comments: Surfaces show more dissection and are topographically higher than the Prairie. Composed of terraces formerly designated as Montgomery, Irene, and most of the Bentley. Where overlain by loess, this unit has a red dotted overlay pattern on the source map. Polygons for this unit in our coverage which should have the loess overlay pattern are designated by "-l" being added to the base map unit symbol.
