New approaches to studying shallow fault zone properties with high-resolution topography
Coseismic surface deformation fields provide us with information about the physical and mechanical properties of faults and fault zones. Recent advances in geodetic imaging and analysis allow us to map deformation and infer fault properties at spatial resolutions that were previously unattainable. These high-resolution, remotely-sensed datasets provide an intermediate observational scale that bridges the gap between very local field measurements of surficial faulting and far-field satellite geodesy which samples deeper slip, allowing previously-overlooked shallow-subsurface fault structure to ...
