Return to Lake Tahoe Perspective Views

Lake Tahoe Perspective View, see caption below.

Oblique view of Lake Tahoe shaded-relief bathymetry looking west towards the lake's mid-western margin. The distance across the bottom of the image is approximately 3.5 km. The image has a vertical exaggeration of 3 times the horizontal distance. The colored region is the lake floor, while the gray-scale region is the surrounding land. This view shows in the foreground large debris blocks that are scattered on the floor of the lake and in the background, the remnants of a large failure and sediment tongue. See view 4 for further explanation.
