    The requested survey area consisted of two polygons located east of Bryce, UT. The polygons enclose approximately 39 km2 (15 mi2). The survey will support a study on coupling of a high resolution base DEM and ultra-high resolution terrestrial DOMs to inform correlation of fluvial strata in the Straight Cliffs Formation, South-Central, Utah.
