NASA - Oblique View of Borrego Fault

This 3-D airborne light detection and ranging (lidar) oblique view of the Borrego Fault, taken from the post-earthquake topographic survey, shows a wide zone of numerous small faults that slice the ground surface and offset the floor of a desert wash surrounding the main fault. 

The various colours in the landscape represent elevation changes during the earthquake. Image generated in Crusta ( with 2x vertical exaggeration.
