    Collection Overview: This dataset covers a site near the southern extent of the 16 December 1954 M 6.8 Dixie Valley earthquake rupture in central Nevada, United States. At this site, a nearly linear debris flow chute that drains the Stillwater Range front on to a shallowly sloping alluvial fan is offset by both synthetic and antithetic fault scarps that together form an intervening graben. Vegetation classification was performed manually in an immersive 3D virtual reality CAVE. This dataset includes intensity-scaled point-coloring. Surveyor: Peter Gold
