Airborne Laser Mapping Topography Along the San Andreas Fault

Airborne laser mapping topography along the San Andreas fault

Detailed Description

Maps made from analysis of airborne laser mapping topography along the San Andreas fault. In this area, a complex network of faults has led to the creation of large scarps due to combined horizontal and vertical motion on the faults. Stream channels that cross these scarps also record this offset, and are useful for understanding the relative activity on faults that lead to the creation of topographic relief.
