This lidar survey of Dump Creek, ID was collected for Brian Yanites at Indiana University, Bloomington in order to quantify the impact of a late 19th century drainage diversion on landscape processes. The rerouting of Moose Creek to Dump Creek resulted in the river channel widening and undercutting the proximal valley walls, initiating scores of landslides. The data will be used to map the channel morphology, landslides, and tension cracks that continue to propagate across this landscape over a century after the drainage diversion. Data was collected in September 2019 at Dump Creek, northwest of Salmon, Idaho.
