Field, remote sensing, and modeling data used for Collins et al., Rockfall Kinematics from Massive Rock Cliffs: Outlier Boulders and Flyrock Resulting from the 2020 Whitney Portal, California Rockfalls

Metadata Updated: October 29, 2023

This data release includes information used to support the manuscript "Rockfall kinematics from massive rock cliffs: outlier boulders and flyrock from Whitney Portal, California rockfalls". The included datasets and supplement include data that was collected and processed to investigate the kinematics of boulder trajectories and impacts to both other boulders and to existing trees on the talus slope beneath the source area cliffs. This data release includes four folders and one .csv file: 1) GIS Data – shapefile (.shp) of runout zone boundary, 2) RockyFor3d Model Data - .asc and .csv files necessary as input for RockyFor3d model, 3) Terrestrial Lidar- .txt file containing the XYZRGB point cloud collected post rockfall on July 6, 2020, 4) UAV Data- photos taken from UAV flight (.dng and .jpg), GPS data (.csv), processing report of the model (.pdf), and the Structure from Motion (SFM) point cloud (.txt), and (5) .csv file of the outlier boulder locations.
