Untangling tectonic slip from the potentially misleading effects of landform geometry

Abstract:

We present a new three-dimensional (3D) approach to the analysis of fault scarps using high-resolution elevation models. Advances in topographic measurement techniques [e.g., lidar (light detection and ranging) and photogrammetric techniques] have allowed extensive measurement of single earthquake and cumulative scarps to draw conclusions about along-strike slip variation and fault slip history. The resulting slip distributions are almost always variable and noisy, but the cause is often uncl...
