We present numeric grids containing estimates of the thickness of unconsolidated sediments and depth to the pre-Cenozoic
basement for the western United States. Values for these grids were combined and integrated from previous studies or derived
directly from gravity analyses. The grids are provided with 1-kilometer grid-node spacing in ScienceBase (https://www.sciencebase.gov).
These layers may be updated as results from new studies become available.
