Abstract

An analysis of a 3-cm wavelength radar image of Cottonball Basin in Death Valley National Monument has revealed the existence of two suspect fault traces in evaporite deposits that are less than 2000-yr old. The traces are well defined on the image because the radar system was able to differentiate surface roughness variations at the centimeter scale. The features are not recognizable on data sets recorded in the visible and near-infrared spectral bands. - from Authors
