I would like to thank Timothy Colton and Jerry Hough for their invaluable assistance in conducting this study and their insightful comments on written drafts.

I would especially like to acknowledge David Woodruff, whose detailed knowledge of the region, insightful explanations, and helpful comments have immeasurably contributed to this study. All errors are, of course, my own responsibility.
