    The Southern California Earthquake Center is the author of the first pamphlet. A key point is to stay inside during an earthquake since falling buildings can injure you if you go outside. I know it may seem counterintuitive but people are killed by stuff falling off the sides of buildings, like bricks, gargoyles, and more.
    Be sure to simply explore the Earth in Google Earth. You will learn a lot. For example, here is a set of three-dimensional normal faults in the Afar Triangle of Africa. For those of us trying to understand mutually interfering faults, this example shows one way that it works.

    Steve Fortney produced an especially great image of the San Rafael Swell in Utah using the following procedure. “The band difference file I submitted with my assignment is a result of performing a band difference calculation three times: band7-band5, band5-band4, and band3-band1, then combining the three files into a RGB composite file. To create each band difference file I imported two bands, indicated the source of each band in the "Calculations" dialogue box found in the Image menu, then performed the calculation. I changed the mode from multichannel to grey scale then I performed a histogram stretch on the band difference file. In a new document I combined all 3 band difference files and adjusted the histogram of the resulting file. Finally, I adjusted the color balance of the composite image. “
    Here is his image:

    San Rafael Swell, Utah. Stephen Forney processed this Landsat 7 image.
    This example in Afar triangle in ne Africa shows how volcanic rocks produce very different spectral responses that only the multispectral satellites “see”. Red spots are vents and cinder comes, which may be emitting gases and vapors that the satellite can detect as well. Hydrothermal alteration is detection by band 7 in Landsat data sets.
    Band 7 is the short wavelength Infrared band. It “sees” hydrothermal alteration and also is very sensitive to gases and fluids erupting from active Quaternary volcanoes. You can prospect for active volcanism using recipe I gave above for the 742 plus 8 with a histrogram stretch on lightness, a and b channels. I did this in Baja Mexico and located a lot of unmapped active cinder cones.

    ...
    a crisp.
    Select the RGB channel at the top of the channel dialog box. Now go to Image>Adjustments>Levels (or type “command L”). Select R, or G or B. This allows you to do a histogram stretch on each channel separately, in sequence. It allows you to see how the changes affect your image as you go along too.

    great! Really.
    How

    A Caveat: If you need high resolution digital elevation models you have to grab a whole bunch of adjacent images from GeoMapapp at high resolution (zoomed in). Doing this is time consuming and you can get hideous gaps in data if you are not careful. In addition, any change in the parameters of your image will mean that adjacent dems do not match in their color scheme or resolution, or contour interval or whatever. For example, do not start making dems and then decide to turn off the contours. You will have to start over and redo your work. Work on the fastest computer with the faster internet connection and the largest possible screen.

Want to know if the lumpy area is till or a dune field?-check the soils map. It is organized by country and state, so have that information at hand before you dive in. The nice thing about this site is that is even includes unpublished soil surveys. Be prepared to tune youi brain to “soils speak” but look at the “typical profile” to see whether the material is sand, silt gravel or bedrock. Protolith may or may not be identified correctly in my experience.
