This 2015 airborne lidar dataset covers the eastern San Gabriel Mountains and northern San Jacinto Mountains, California. The goal of this project was to characterize the morphology of steep hillslopes in southern California to understand how bedrock fracturing controls landscape evolution. The survey area covers approximately 143 km2 in the San Gabriel Mountains and 183 km2 in the San Jacinto Mountains.
