Example 63.5.5 (Trace for flat quasi-finite). Let $f : X \to Y$ be a morphism of schemes which is flat, locally quasi-finite, and locally of finite presentation. Then we obtain a canonical positive weighting $w : X \to \mathbf{Z}$ by setting

See More on Morphisms, Lemma 37.75.7. Thus by Lemmas 63.5.2 and 63.5.3 for $f$ we obtain trace maps

functorial for $K$ in $D(Y_{\acute{e}tale}, \Lambda )$ and compatible with arbitrary base change. Note that any base change $f' : X' \to Y'$ of $f$ satisfies the same properties and that $w$ restricts to the canonical weighting for $f'$.
