As shown in the classification schedule, Table G3 is modifed when it used with the range GB1029-1198.  The numbers GB1197-1197.5 are used for Antarctica rather than GB1197-1198.  This frees the numbers GB1197.6-1198 for use for other topics.

I am including a query from a colleague for your consideration 
concerning the Hierarchy Browser.

There seems to be a conflict between the call number ranges assigned to 
Groundwater hydrology, other regions and countries table (GB1029-1198) 
and the classifications GB1197.6 for Groundwater exploration, GB1197.7 
for Ground water flow, and GB1197.8 for Saltwater encroachment/salinity
My immediate concern is with the correct classification for Ground water 
flow. Following the other regions and countries table (GB1029-1198), the 
classification range GB1197-1198 seems to apply only to Ground water 
hydrology in Antarctica.

Thank you in advance.
