This airborne lidar dataset covers a 68 x 1.5 km corridor along the northwest-trending central-western sections of the Agua Blanca Fault (ABF) in northern Baja California, Mexico. The ABF accommodates right-lateral Pacific-North American plate boundary deformation across the Peninsular Ranges of Baja California between the western escarpment of the Gulf of California and the Pacific coast. The data were collected by the National Center for Airborne Laser Mapping (NCALM); collection was jointly financed by Department of Geological Sciences, Jackson School of Geosciences, University of Texas at Austin (UTA) and the Earth Sciences Division of the Centro de Investigación Científica y de Educación Superior de Ensenada, Baja California (CICESE). Project PIs were Jose Romo, John Fletcher and Alejandro Hinojosa of CICESE (CONACyT grant 133042) and Whitney Behr and Peter Gold of UT Austin.
