Dataset Name: Terrestrial Scanning LiDAR of Kilbourne Hole Maar, Potrillo Volcanic Field, New Mexico Short Name: Kilbourne2019_Whelley File Names: kilbourne_TLS_01_UTMz13N_Whelley.las kilbourne_TLS_02_UTMz13N_Whelley.las Collection Platform: Terrestrial Scanning LiDAR

Dataset Overview: Data was collected in June 2017 and March 2018 for ultra-high resolution mapping of Kilbourne Hole, a mar crater in the Potrillo Volcanic Field in southeastern New Mexico. Data was collected by the NASA Goddard Instrument Filed Team. Approximately 0.1 km2 of ultra-high resolution data were collected for this project.

Dataset Acknowledgement: Data collection was partially funded by the RIS4E (The Remote, In Situ, and Synchrotron Studies for Science and Exploration; Principal Investigator Tim Glotch) node of NASA’s SSERVI (Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute), and (in 2018) the NASA Goddard Instrument Field Team. Data were collected under Bureau of Land Management Research Permit #:1814 (L0310) to J. Bleacher and J. Hurtado.

Dataset Keywords: lidar, ultra-high resolution, Kilbourne, Potrillo, Surge Bed, Maar, New Mexico.
