    Collection Overview: Tectonic geomorphic markers such as fault scarps of recent and historic earthquakes form the basis for paleoseismic studies that aim to understand the spatiotemporal distribution of earthquakes, their magnitudes, and recurrences. This terrestrial laser scanning dataset was acquired to survey a section of the 1992 Landers earthquake fault scarp. For more details, visit:
