2021 Cumbre Vieja volcano eruption (La Palma, Spain) SfM DSM, Jan 2022

Metadata Updated: July 7, 2022

Digital surface model of the Cumbre Vieja new volcano edifice and lava flows (La Palma, Spain) produced from 9970 UAS derived aerial photographs using the Structure-from-Motion method. The 2021 eruption of Cumbre Vieja volcano is the largest eruptive event in recorded history for La Palma Island (Canary Island, Spain). Over almost 3 months (September 19 - December 13, 2021), the volcano produced profound morphological changes in the landscape affecting both the natural and the anthropic environment over an area of tens of km2. The model shows numerous volcanic features including the new main edifice, lava flows, rafted material on lava flows, and tephra deposits. In addition, numerous fractures affecting the main edifice are evident. For more details on this dataset, please see the citation: Civico R., Ricci, T., Scarlato P., et al. (2022). High-resolution Digital Surface Model of the 2021 eruption deposit of Cumbre Vieja volcano, La Palma, Spain. Sci Data (submitted).
