Vibracore CT scans from the San Lorenzo River

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 ...

Observations of tsunami and runup heights in Santa Cruz Harbor and surrounding beaches from the 2022 Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha'apai tsunami

The 14 January 2022 eruption of Tonga Hunga-Tonga Ha'apai volcano generated tsunamis that impacted the west coast of the United States on the morning of 15 January 2022. This data release presents runup heights and tsunami heights collected by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the California Geological Survey (CGS) during surveys at the Santa Cruz Harbor and beaches in Santa Cruz County, California, on January 19th and 20th, 2022 (USGS Field Activity 2022-607-FA). Evidence of tsunami inundation included ...

Computed Tomography (CT) scans of vibracores from Searsville Lake, Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve, Stanford, California

This portion of the data release presents computed tomography (CT) images from vibracores collected from Searsville Lake, Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve, Stanford, California in October 2018 (USGS Field Activity 2018-682-FA). A Geotek Rotating X-Ray CT (RXCT) system was used to acquire x-ray images and perform CT reconstructions of unsplit core segments. The full three-dimensional data set consists of individual axial slices which are reconstructed images in TIFF format. These axial slices are oriented ...

Core locations, segment depths, and estimated compaction from vibracores collected in Searsville Lake, Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve, Stanford, California

This portion of the data release presents measurements and data from two vibracores (JRBP2018-VC01A and JRBP2018-VC01B) collected from Searsville Lake, a reservoir in the Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve, Stanford, California, on October 29, 2018 (USGS Field Activity 2018-682-FA). Vibracoring introduced significant amounts of sediment compaction. The core depths in other datasets of this data release are not corrected for compaction. Translated depths are provided in this portion of the data release that ...

Gamma-ray bulk density measurements of vibracore JRBP2018-VC01B from Searsville Lake, Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve, Stanford, California

This portion of the data release presents gamma-ray bulk density measurements of vibracore JRBP2018-VC01B collected from Searsville Lake, Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve, Stanford, California in October 2018 (USGS Field Activity 2018-682-FA). The gamma-ray bulk density data are provided in a comma-delimited file (.csv).

Photographs of vibracores from Searsville Lake, Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve, Stanford, California

This portion of the data release presents linescan images (photographs) from vibracores collected from Searsville Lake, a reservoir in Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve, Stanford, California in October 2018 (USGS Field Activity 2018-682-FA). Images were obtained from two vibracores (JRBP2018-VC01A and JRBP2018-VC01B) at 50-micron (200 pixel per cm) resolution. Color images in 16-bit TIFF format are provided for each core segment, along with proprietary metadata files containing image scaling information.

Sediment grain-size distributions from vibracores collected in Searsville Lake, Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve, Stanford, California

This portion of the data release presents sediment grain-size data from vibracores collected from Searsville Lake, Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve, Stanford, California in October 2018 (USGS Field Activity 2018-682-FA). In total, 36 samples were subsampled from two vibracores: JRBP2018-VC01A and JRBP2018-VC01B. The grain-size distributions of samples were determined using standard techniques developed by the USGS Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center sediment lab. The grain-size data are provided in a ...

X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) scans of vibracores from Searsville Lake, Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve, Stanford, California

This portion of the data release presents X-ray Flourescence (XRF) data from vibracores collected from Searsville Lake, a reservoir in Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve, Stanford, California in October 2018 (USGS Field Activity 2018-682-FA). The XRF data are provided in comma-delimited files (.csv), one per core.
