Collection Overview: NCALM Seed Project. PI: Marisa Palucis, University of California Berkeley. The survey area is a rectangular polygon, roughly 5.44 km on a side, enclosing the Barringer Meteorite Crater and its ejecta blanket. The project area is located 60 km southeast of Flagstaff, AZ and 30 km west of Winslow, Az. The polygon has a surface area of 29.7 km2; the requirement indicates two point densities one for the crater walls and rim of 8 pts/ m2, and one for the surrounding area of 4 pts/m2.
