    Collection Overview: NCALM logo PI: Steven G. Wesnousky, University of Nevada, Reno
    The requested survey area consisted of 1-km wide swaths centered along 335 km of fault centerlines. There were a total of 44 fault segments for 12 fault lines, totaling a nominal 335 km2 of map area. The faults are spread throughout an area of 15,600 km 2 of central western Nevada east of Lake Tahoe. The faults' names and 4 letter identifiers used for the data products are: Antelope Valley (AntV), Benton (Bent), Benton North (BntN), Bridgeport (Brdg), Carson Linement (CarL), Little Valley (LitV), Mason (Masn), Petrified Springs (PetS), Smith Valley (SmtV), Wassuks (Wass), Wabuska (Wbsk), Olinghouse Opton (OlOp).
