Fagradalsfjall (Iceland) 2021 Eruption Unoccupied Aircraft Systems (UAS) Data: Surveys

This item contains data products from UAS surveys conducted during the 2021 Fagradalsfjall eruption in Iceland. This collection includes Digital Elevation Models (DEMs) and orthomosaics generated from each survey using Agisoft Metashape Pro software. In addition to the survey results, there are three key files: 

  1. READ_ME_Fagradalsfjall_2021_eruption_UAS_data.docx: A Read me file listing all file types and file names for the dataset.
  2. Fagradalsfjall_2021_eruption_UAS_survey_processing_data.xlsx: A summary table providing camera and processing information for all UAS surveys included in the dataset
  3. A folder containing all reports for the UAS surveys in this dataset. 

The UAS surveys were conducted by University of Arizona’s Lunar and Planetary Laboratory scientists and colleagues at the University of Iceland (Háskóli Íslands), Icelandic Institute of Natural History (Náttúrufræðistofnun Íslands), and National Land Survey of Iceland (Landmælingar Íslands). The survey data was processed at the University of Arizona.

The surveys show lava flow emplacement, the growth of the lava flow field, and the growth of the cones surrounding multiple vents. This dataset includes surveys from March through August of 2021.
