Summary

Newberry Volcano, one of the largest Quaternary volcanoes in the conterminous United States, is a broad shield-shaped volcano measuring 60 km north-south by 30 km east-west with a maximum elevation of more than 2 km above sea level. It is the product of deposits from thousands of eruptions, including at least 25 in (approximately) the last 12,000 years (the Holocene Epoch). Newberry Volcano has erupted as recently as 1,300 years ago, but isotopic ages indicate that the volcano began its growth as early as 0.6 million years ago. Such a long eruptive history together with recent activity suggests that Newberry Volcano is likely to erupt in the future. This DEM (digital elevation model) of Newberry Volcano contributes to natural hazard [...]

Purpose

These data, a raster digital elevation model (DEM), are derived from an airborne lidar (Light Detection and Ranging) survey of Newberry Volcano and the adjacent vicinity and bathymetric surveys of East and Paulina Lakes, contribute to efforts to monitor natural hazards, and the study of regional geology, volcanic landforms, and landscape modification during and after future volcanic eruptions.
