Strike-slip in transtension: Complex crustal architecture of the Warm Springs Valley fault zone, northern Walker Lane

September 16, 2022

This data release contains field data for two P-wave seismic reflection profiles acquired across the Warm Springs Valley fault zone, part of the Northern Walker Lane, NV. The dataset consists of high-resolution seismic reflection field records in .segy format, shot coordinates in .csv format, and observers? logs in .pdf format. The high-resolution seismic profiles are approximately 4 km long. The northern profile (Warm Springs Line 1) is oblique to a prominent fault bounded ridge. The southern profile (Warm Springs Line 2) crosses the northern end of Warm Springs Valley and is nearly co-located with COCORP profile NV-08. To obtain the seismic profiles, we used a 230 kg accelerated weight drop source and a nominal geophone spacing of 5 m. We deployed single 8 Hz vertical?component geophones and recorded data on 168 of these sensors per field record. Source stations were co-located with the geophone stations.
