Digital Surface Model of Ridgecrest, CA: Pre-July 2019 Earthquakes

Jul 9, 2019

OpenTopography is pleased to announce the release of digital surface model (DSM) that is a mosaic of 2 meter resolution stereogrammetric DSMs acquired prior to the July 2019 Ridgecrest, California earthquake sequence. This dataset covers over 10,000 km 2 of the region surrounding the recent earthquakes, and provides a unique opportunity for research of this event. This is a pre-release of a larger data set of California (CaliDEM) that will be fully submitted to OpenTopography at a later date.
