A polygon layer of regions of multiple planetary bodies beyond Earth that are covered by proposed or published planetary geologic maps published by the USGS.

Astrogeology Science Center Monthly Reports 1961 - 1975

Monthly report to show updates on personnel and conferences and scientific meetings. Includes unpublished works and works in progress.

Gully Monitoring Sites and New Flows on Mars Observed in HiRISE Data

This dataset consists of data from monitoring of gullies on Mars using the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE). Table 1 provides a list of monitored locations, which are HiRISE image series covering Martian gullies with a time baseline of at least 4000 Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) orbits. Images from these locations were blink-compared at 1 m/pix to search for changes on the g

Photogrammetrically Controlled, Equirectangular Galileo Image Mosaics of Europa

The Solid State Imager (SSI) on NASA's Galileo spacecraft acquired more than 500 images of Jupiter's moon, Europa, providing the only moderate- to high-resolution images of the moon's surface. Images were acquired as observation sequences during each orbit that targeted the moon. Each of these observation sequences consists of between 1 and 19 images acquired close in time, that typically overlap,

NASA GIFT Iceland Highlands: 2019 Oskjuvatn LiDAR

LiDAR scans were taken using a tripod mounted Riegl VZ-400 scanning LiDAR. The tripod was set up such that the scanner was between 1.5 and 2.5 m tall. The VZ-400 is a near infrared (1550 nm) scanner. Geometric control was achieved using a pair of Trimble RB GPS antennae, one mounted on the LiDAR scanner (rover) and the other setup as a base station. Before taking a LiDAR scan, the VZ-400 would use

Sensor Data from Monitoring the Cooling of the 2014-2015 Lava Flow and Hydrothermal System at Holuhraun, Iceland

This data release is a companion to Dundas et al., NNNN. Additional description of the methods and rationale for data collection is provided there. The primary data are from several categories of data-logging sensors described in detail below. Sixteen images are also included as part of this data release. These document the sensor locations as described in Dundas et al. (NNNN).

Imagery, soil temperature and humidity profiles, and meteorological data from December 2020 to April 2021, Grand Falls Dune Field, Arizona

Grand Falls dune field (GFDF) is located on the Navajo Nation, ~70 km NE of Flagstaff, AZ. This active dune field displays a range of morphologies, including barchans, smaller dunes, and ripples, and is bimodal in composition. The felsic component is likely derived from the Little Colorado River, and the mafic component (basaltic grains) is locally sourced from nearby cinder cones [1]. GFDF is an

Aircraft-Borne Thermal Imagery and Derived Terrain Analysis Layers, Pisgah Lava Field, California

This dataset is one of many used in the development of the manuscript 'Advancing Cave Detection using Terrain Analysis Techniques and Thermal Imagery' by Wynne et al. 2021. Manuscript Abstract: Since the initial experiments nearly 50 years ago, techniques for detecting caves using airborne and spacecraft acquired thermal imagery have improved markedly. These advances are largely due to a combinati

Terrestrial Tephra Spectral Library for the Visible-Near-Infrared and Mid-Infrared Spectral Regions

Visible/near-infrared (VNIR) and mid-infrared (MIR) spectral library composed of twenty natural tephra samples from ten volcanic sources that span a range of compositions and components. The bulk, glass, and mineral phase compositions of each sample have been measured and VNIR and MIR spectra from four size fractions of each sample were collected.

Kaguya Terrain Camera Ames Stereo Pipeline Generated Digital Terrain Models of the Moon

This is a digital terrain model (DTM) extracted from Kaguya Terrain Camera (TC)stereo images from the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) SELenological and ENgineering Explorer (SELENE) mission. The original data product is a DTM from stereo images acquired at approximately 10 meters/pixel resolution, which allows an output DTM post spacing of 35 meters/pixel. The DTM was generated using the

Oblique Thermal Imaging of the Pisgah Lava Field, California Acquired March 2010

As part of a NASA-funded study of diurnal thermal imaging at a Mars analog site, we conducted simultaneous oblique thermal imaging and in situ temperature measurements within two regions of interest on the Pisgah lava field, near Ludlow, California. Both regions of interest contained either cave or cave-like alcoves. Data released in this report was collected from 03/23/2010 to 03/25/2010. The exp
