    Collection Overview: NCALM logo This lidar dataset was collected by NCALM for Roman DiBiase at Pennsylvania State University. This study uses airborne lidar to quantify the controls of wildfire, climate, and tectonics on the transition between soil-mantled and bedrock hillslopes. The study area consists of sections located north of Ridgecrest, California and covers approximately 133 km2.
