Mass flows maps at Mount Cleveland from DEMs

These data are the results in a paper entitled "Quantifying mass flows at Mt. Cleveland, Alaska between 2001 and 2020 using satellite photogrammetry" submitted to JVGR in 2022. It includes the 2-m resolution surface elevation change and uncertainty maps for the 2001 Cleveland eruption (Fig. 1a in the paper), the 2-m resolution surface elevation change, and uncertainty maps corresponding to the accumulative changes of the following three eruptions: February 3, 2017, to January 20, 2019 eruption, the November 7 to November 15, 2019 eruption, and the June 1, 2020 eruption (Fig. 3a). This data set also includes the boundary of the deposit field, the boundary of mass loss, and the boundary of snow. Here we also share the digitized outlines from mass flows in previously published material (e.g., Smith (2005) and an image from the Alaska Volcano Observatory). The GeoTIFF files can be viewed in free and open-source software QGIS, in Google Earth, or by Matlab using code The shapefiles can be viewed in QGIS. Google Earth may not show some of the shapefiles well. Smith, S.J., 2005.
