2010 Sep Tibet

This year we had the chance to track down the fault scarps of the Yanbajin area and completed the survey of the lacustrine terrace in Bayi. The field survey was done with Ling-Ho Chung, Shujun Zhao, LittleC, and Dr. Yue-Gau Chen. The normal faulting system is so active and provides the heat to the geothermal power plants along the mountain front. 

Recent fault scarp traces near the Yanbajin area.

Strong hydrothermal activities of hot springs and gases along the active fault.

Do you see the fault scarp?

Run into the rainbow on the top of terraces as we were 
looking for the trace of the fault : )
