1   2012 Santorini LiDAR dataset EU-12-12-137
 
Description
Datasets from a LiDAR survey of the Greek volcanic islands of Nea Kameni and Palea Kameni, Santorini, Greece. Data were collected during a NERC ARSF flight campaign EU-12-12-137.

See the open access paper in GeoResJ by Evi Nomikou et al., (2014) for details; http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.grj.2014.02.002

1   2018 Faraglione, Vulcano Island, Sicily, Italy (simple demo)
 
Description
These data were collected over the Faraglione--a rock outcropping in the Vulcano Town area, Vulcano Island, Sicily, Italy. They were produced as part of a general investigation of the island and in support of a Risk Course from the University of Geneva lead by Professor Costanza Bonnadonna. The Faragalione is a set of tilted and deformed volcanic rocks. Collected with a DJI Phantom 4 Pro by Ramon Arrowsmith in coordination with Dr. Fabio Pisciotta of the INGV. Alessandro Gattuso (INGV) assisted in ground control and planning.

2   Photogrammetric model of a portion of the Lee Adoyta Basin, Afar, Ethiopia
 
Description
These data were collected in the Lee Adoyta basin of Ledi Geraru Research Project, Lower Awash Valley, Afar, Ethiopia. They were produced in support of paleontological research. The area comprises gently tilted 2.7 million year old rocks faulted against 3 million year old basalts. The area was described by DiMaggio, E. N., Campisano, C. J., Rowan, J., Dupont-Nivet, G., Deino, A. L., Bibi, F., Lewis, M. E., Souron, A., Garello, D., Werdelin, L., Reed, K., E., Arrowsmith, J R., Late Pliocene Fossiliferous Sedimentary Record and the Environmental Context of early Homo from Afar, Ethiopia, Science, VOL 347 ISSUE 6228, 10.1126/science.aaa1415, 2015. Collected with a DJI Mavic Air by Ramon Arrowsmith in coordination with Erin DiMaggio. Dominique Garello and Brian Villmoare assisted in ground control and planning.

3   Washington Street site, Banning strand, southern San Andreas Fault, CA
 
Description
Washington Street site data was generated using Structure from Motion (SfM; not a laser scanning method). The site is located ~20 km due east of Palm Springs and covers a short section of the southern Banning strand of the San Andreas Fault that cuts through an alluvial fan and has not ruptured historically. The site serves as a test site for using SfM in paleoseismic studies.

4   Galway Lake Road, Emerson Fault, CA
 
Description
Galway Lake Road site data was generated using Structure from Motion (SfM; not a laser scanning method). The site, located ~45 km north of Yucca Valley, covers a segment of the Emerson Fault ruptured by the 1992 Mw 7.3 Landers earthquake, and tests the feasibility of SfM as part of the immediate scientific response following an earthquake.
