Import ArcInfo Coverages into ArcGIS 10.3

Hi all,


I am using ArcGIS 10.3 and am trying to import data for a map from USGS (Tectonic Map of the Circum-Pacific Region, Pacific Basin Sheet ). On their website they describe the data as:

     "The map digital database includes several Arc/Info coverages (individual vector datasets)

     The databases in this report were compiled in ArcInfo workstation (not ArcGIS Desktop), a

     commercial Geographic Information System (Environmental Systems Research Institute)

     ArcInfo workstation version 9.3 for Windows XP"

I do not succeed in importing the data (mainly adf-files) as coverage, as I imagined it would work. I also don't even see the files in ArcCatalog.

I attach a screenshot of the overall folder-structure and one opened folder ("basin") with the adf-files.

Can anyone help out? Is it possible to load the data with ArcGIS Desktop at all?
