ABSTRACT
A large-scale survey to select a path for the East Siberia-Pacific Ocean (ESPO) pipeline has shown the urgency and high demand for detailed paleoseismological investigations using a new technology based on laser scanning. The laser scanning results allowed us not only to identify and thoroughly map numerous fault-line scarps, but also to estimate their morphometric parameters (height, steepness) and distinguish scarps that were formed as a result of single or multifold seismogenic displacements. The high efficiency of the laser scanning results makes it necessary to involve this tool in paleoseismological investigations.
