This movie was incorporated into the USGS video publication “Lake in the Sky: USGS Tahoe Basin Science” (Stephen M. Wessells, producer).
Fly-by of the shaded-relief bathymetry and surrounding land of Lake Tahoe, California-Nevada. The colored region is the lake floor below lake level and the gray region (digital orthophotographs) shows the surrounding mountains and communities. The lake is approximately 34 km long and 18 km wide. The flight approaches from the south, flies around the lake floor in a clockwise direction, and leaves over the Truckee River.
