    Collection Overview: This dataset was collected as an NCALM Seed grant for PI Keelin Schaffrath of Utah State University. The requested survey area consists of corridor polygons centered on 3 streams draining the Tushar Mountains of southwest Utah located 35 km northeast of Beaver, UT. The dataset was collected to quantify post-wildfire fish habitat quality.

    This survey was performed with an Optech Titan multispectral airborne LiDAR sensor mounted in a twin-engine Piper PA-31-350 Navajo Chieftain (Tail Number N640WA).
