Short Name: CA11_LOS_OSOS
Collection Platform: Airborne Lidar
The Diablo Canyon Power Plant (DCPP) Lidar and Imagery datasets are comprised of three separate Lidar surveys: Diablo Canyon (2010), Los Osos (2011), and San Simeon (2013).
The DCPP Los Osos project study area is located in San Luis Obispo County, California, and encompasses approximately 170,000 acres (674.59 square kilometers). Watershed Sciences, Inc. (WSI) collected Light Detection and Ranging (Lidar) data across the project area from 17 March 2011 to 31 March 2011.
The lidar survey utilized a Leica ALS60 sensor in a Cessna Caravan. The Leica system was set to acquire 105,900 laser pulses per second (i.e., 105.9 kHz pulse rate) and flown at 900 meters above ground level (AGL), capturing a scan angle of ±14° from nadir when clouds and terrain permitted. With these flight parameters, the laser swath width is 449m and the laser pulse footprint is 21cm. These settings yield an average native pulse density of ≥8 pulses per square meter over terrestrial surfaces.
This survey was flown as part of the DCPP Long-Term Seismic Program (LTSP). In addition to aerial Lidar data, DEM raster data are available for this area: Los Osos DEMs.
