Vibracore CT scans from the San Lorenzo River

June 4, 2021

This data release contains information on computed tomography (CT) images of a vibracore that was collected by the U.S. Geological Survey in 2019. A site next to the San Lorenzo River in Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park, California, was cored to understand the history of recent vertical incision and floodplain abandonment. The core was split into 3 segments after collection. Each segment was scanned using a Geotek Rotating X-ray CT (RXCT) System and CT reconstruction was performed using Geotek reconstruction software. Geotek CT_Quickview software was used to select a representative down-core orthogonal slice from each core segment and the Geotek AddRuler software was used to display core-lengths in each image. The downcore orthogonal slice CT images of each core segment are included as three separate TIFF files. Each TIFF file is accompanied by a software-proprietary XML file that contains the x-ray scanning configuration and settings in addition to dimensional data of the TIFF images.
