Classification scheme used in assessing confidence that a cone extracted from Bedmap2 (Fretwell et al. 2013) can be interpreted as a volcano

Confidence assessment criterionDataset/sourceConfidence score
00.51
(1) Distance to nearest raw ice-thickness measurementFigure 3 in Fretwell et al. (2013)>15 km5–15 km<5 km
(2) Expression in ice-surface DEM overlying identified subglacial coneBedmap2 ice-surface DEM: Fretwell et al. (2013)No expressionAssociated but off-centre anomalyDirect overlying anomaly
