Dataset:

Book Cliffs (Wasatch Plateau), Utah

Stratigraphy of the study area includes, from bottom up, Mancos Shale (offshore), Star Point (shallow marine), Blackhawk (marginal marine), and Castlegate (continental fluvial) strata.

 

An airplane was used to acquire hundreds of digital photos along the entire Wasatch Cliff (~120 km) to create high-resolution photomontages.

 

We are seeking sponsors to support our ongoing research
