  • This dataset contains 3D Lidar scans representative for 0.5 ha permanent sample plots at Caatinga, Brazil. Two plots were located in Serra das Almas Reserve (SDA) and one plot in Petrolina (PET). The dataset also includes scans completed inside and outside for 10 individual trees. Scans were taken between July 2017 and May 2019. Full details about this dataset can be found at https://doi.org/10.5285/6a29d55e-b40e-4f8c-8dd2-5cf0e27634ac

  • Wind, sediment transport and surface/saltation data collected at Huab River Valley during a field campaign in September 2019 to investigate saltation on gravel and sand surfaces. Surface/saltation data: This is terrestrial laser scanned (TLS) data collected over sand and gravel surfaces during multiple days when saltation was active, on a surface approximately 8 m from the TLS, perpendicular to the wind direction. The data is raw point cloud format in text columns of x, y and z coordinate data. Files are named *_^_scan& where * is the date that the data was collected in yymmdd format, ^ is surface type (sand or gravel) and & is the scan number. Each data set uses the same coordinate system. Data can be viewed in any spatial software. Wind and sediment data were collected from a fixed point on each surface, directly downwind of the TLS data. The data is in csv file format with column titles and can be viewed in any text or database software. Data include hot wire measurements at different heights, Wenglor counts, sensit counts and 3D sonic measurements on some days. Sonic data is at 10 Hz, hotwire data at 10 second intervals, transport data is given within both datasets.

  • Wind and surface morphological data collected at Medano Creek on the 15th April 2019 to investigate protodune initiation. Surface morphological data: This is terrestrial laser scanned (TLS) data collected of the creek sand surface using three different co-located Leica TLS (C10, P20 and P50). The data is raw point cloud format in text columns of x, y and z coordinate data. It has been orientation into the same local coordinate system. Each data set uses the same coordinate system. Data can be viewed in any spatial software. Data is labelled using C10, P20 or P50, followed by the scan number. Scan times are indicated in a seperate file. Wind data were collected from a fixed point next to the TLS instruments using a Gill 3D sonic anemometer. The data is in csv file format with column titles and can be viewed in any text or database software.

  • This dataset contains data from a marine geophysical and multibeam survey which took place in April 2012 in the area of Ardmucknish Bay on board the RV White Ribbon. This was a follow up survey to the previous work carried out in this area in 2011 (2011/4). QICS (Quantifying and monitoring potential ecosystem impacts of geological carbon storage) was a scientific research project funded by NERC; its purpose was to improve the understanding of the sensitivities of the UK marine environment to a potential leak from a carbon capture storage (CCS) system. The aim of the survey was to assess any affect the drilling of the borehole had on the underlying sediments. Sea floor bathymetry data were collected using a Kongsberg EM3002D multibeam system. Sub bottom seismic profiling data were collected using an Applied Acoustics surface tow boomer (STB). Technical details of the survey are contained in the BGS Report of Survey.

  • This dataset contains data from a marine multibeam and geophysical survey which took place in June 2011 in the Ardmucknish Bay area on board the BGS survey vessel RV White Ribbon. The survey was carried out by the British Geological Survey (BGS) in collaboration with Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS) and National Oceanography Centre (SAMS). QICS (Quantifying and monitoring potential ecosystem impacts of geological carbon storage) was a scientific research project funded by NERC. The purpose was to collect the data necessary to identify a potential directional drilling route from shore to a submerged gas release point. Sea floor bathymetry data were collected using an EM3002D. Sub bottom seismic profiling data were collected using a surface tow boomer. Technical details of the survey are contained in the BGS Report of Survey. Webpage www.bgs.ac.uk/QICS/. NERC Grant. NE/H013962/1.
