    Collection Overview: ASU logo

    This dataset contains high resolution topography and orthomosaic imagery along three normal fault scarps in the Volcanic Tablelands near Bishop in Eastern California. In the Volcanic Tablelands, normal faults create prominent scarps that offset the Bishop Tuff. This area has been the focus of a number of studies on fault zone structural geology and geomorphology.

    Data was collected via uncrewed aerial vehicle (UAV) imagery over a number of faults in the Volcanic Tablelands. Data products include: point clouds, digital surface models (DSMs), and orthomosaics using structure-from-motion (SfM) techniques.

    Dataset Acknowledgement:

    The data acquisition has been made in the framework of the project FAULTS_R_GEMS led by I. Manighetti, and funded by the French Research Agency under the ANR Grant FAULTS_R_GEMS # ANR-17-CE31-0008. We acknowledge additional funding from the School of Earth & Space Exploration at Arizona State University.

    We thank Dione Perkins at the Bureau of Land Management in the Bishop Office for helping us to gain access to the Volcanic Tablelands to complete our data collection.
