Variance extraction coloured by subsurface elevation at the composite basal shear surface of shallow subsurface MTCs. The point values correspond to subsurface elevation. The MTC is continuous across a gorge between two anticlines. A more detailed explanation can be found in Ortiz-Karpf et al (2015). The link to the paper can be found in the docs and links tab.
