Caption: Garlock fault. True-colour radar-generated image looking north-west, over Antelope Valley, towards the Garlock fault, California, USA. This fault is marked by the mountains running across the image. Together with the San Andreas fault (bottom left corner of the image), it bounds this valley that forms the westernmost part of the Mojave Desert. Rosamund and Rogers dry lakes (white) are at lower right. The active Garlock and San Andreas faults cause major earthquakes in the region. This image was obtained by draping visual Landsat satellite data over topographical radar data from the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM, Space Shuttle Endeavour, February 2000).
