Fig. 6: Examples of surface ruptures and associated deformation measurements.

From: Surface rupture and shallow fault reactivation during the 2019 Mw 4.9 Le Teil earthquake, France

Fig. 6

a, d Field photographs showing surface ruptures affecting an asphalt road and a dirt path (evidences #1 and #5, respectively, see location Fig. 4). Red arrows point to the rupture. Equipment visible in a is a laser scanner used in the following. b, e Ultra-high-resolution (1 mm) laser scans at the same locations. Red arrows point to the same locations as in field photographs. c, f Topographic profiles extracted from laser scans, showing the vertical components.
