    Collection Overview: NCALM Seed. PI: Kristin Morell, Penn State University. The survey area is 76.31 square kilometers, located 26 kilometers northwest of San Francisco, California in the Point Reyes National Seashore. This survey was flown as a part of Seed Money Survey Campaign that took place in Aug-Sept 2009. This section was surveyed over two days: Sept 8, 2009 and Sept 9, 2009. Lidar data was collected to investigate the landscape response to tectonics by studying the coupling between channels and hillslopes during transient adjustment to an increase in uplift rate.
