Perspective view of a combined variance and amplitude extraction at the base of the post-avulsion channel, overlain on a variance extraction at the MTC top. Following the avulsion a new channel conduit evolved. Its geometry and trajectory is affected by the underlying megaclasts. A more detailed explanation can be found in Ortiz-Karpf et al (2015). The link to the paper can be found in the docs and links tab.
