Fagradalsfjall (Iceland) Eruption

Posted on 2022-10-04 - 16:07 authored by Brett Carr

A basaltic volcanic eruption occurred at Fagradalsfjall, on the Reykjanes Peninsula of Iceland, from March to September 2021. The volcano erupted again for a duration of three weeks in August 2022. This collection contains data collected by University of Arizona Lunar and Planetary Laboratory Scientists and their colleagues responding to the eruptions in both 2021 and 2022. This data includes:

  • DEMs and orthophotos produced by unmanned aerial system (UAS) photogrammetric surveys capturing the evolution of the lava flow field through space and time
  • Metadata for the photogrammetric projects which produced the DEMs and orthophotos
  • Ground control point locations and metadata used to spatially reference the UAS surveys
  • UAS nadir video of lava flow channels
  • Time-lapse image sequences of the eruption from multiple locations
