Summary

This data release provides access to an aeromagnetic survey over a part of northeastern California, an area that includes the city of Alturas, California. The survey extends across the Devils Garden part of the Modoc Plateau (west of the Warner Range) and westward to over Medicine Lake volcano. The survey covers the Likely fault zone, an enigmatic northwest-striking set of structures with possible Quaternary activity, and extends south across the Madelaine Plains. These data were acquired between September 24 and November 2, 2019, by EDCON-PRJ, Inc., working under contract to the U.S. Geological Survey. The nominal flying height was based on a best fit, pre-planned, three-dimensional draped surface targeted at 305 m above terrain, [...]
