    Collection Overview: UVU logo The House Range fault data set comprises high-resolution topography and an orthomosaic of part of the House Range fault (HRF) and shorelines of Late Pleistocene Lake Bonneville that it cuts in the Sevier Desert, Eastern Basin and Range Province, Utah, USA. The data set covers ~4.5 km of the HRF scarp, in the central portion of the HRF. The site was chosen for the well-developed and preserved scarp, shorelines, and cross-cutting relationships in the area. UAS derived low-altitude aerial photographs and dGNSS measured ground control points were processed with Structure-from-Motion and multi-view stereo software (SfM) to generate a point cloud, digital surface model (DSM), and orthomosaic, of the area. The House Range fault (HRF) is a range-bounding, west-dipping normal fault in the western Sevier Desert, within the eastern Basin and Range province, Utah, USA. There is up to 1600 m of vertical relief across the fault, and it displays characteristics typical of tectonically driven extensional faulting, in contrast to extension that is associated with volcanism in the eastern Sevier Desert (Stahl and Niemi, 2017; Stahl et al., in review).
