Abstract:
United States Geological Survey, Menlo Park, California,National Science Foundation. Chief Scientist: Rob Kayen. Data (GPS, receiver, LiDar) of field activity T-OH-08-JP in Tohuku, southern Iwate, and Akita prefectures, Northern Miyagi Prefecture from 06/25/2008 to 06/30/2008, <http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/t/toh08jp/html/t-oh-08-jp.meta.html>.
Purpose:
These data and information are intended for science researchers, students from elementary through college, policy makers, and general public.
Supplemental_Information:

Equipment Used -
GPS Garmin hand-held GPS units
receiver Topcon Hiper+ DGPS base station receiver and rover
LiDar Riegl Z420i LiDAR laser scanner
Notes -
The Iwate-Miyagi Nairiku Earthquake, 2008 epicenter is at 39.028333,140.88.
This earthquake occurred in the south of the inland of Iwate Prefecture
at 8:43 JST on Saturday morning, June 14 (23:43 UTC on June 13).
