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 the GPSs to fix a real time kinematic (RTK) solution for the scanner’s location and then use that position (scan position) as a reference for LiDAR returns. Post processing was done using RIScan-Pro version 2 (scanner specific software). Also, in post-processing, overlapping areas of point clouds were merged and inaccuracies...

The Taupo Volcanic Zone (TVZ), New Zealand, is the most productive area of explosive silicic volcanism in the world. Faulted early and middle Pleistocene volcanic products are generally concealed beneath voluminous, generally unfaulted, younger volcanic products. An exception is the southeast margin of the TVZ where the two parallel, northeast-trending Paeroa and Te Weta Fault blocks expose Quaternary volcanic products consisting predominantly of caldera-related, rhyolitic ignimbrites and lacustrine sediments. The Taupo-Reporoa Basin is situated along the eastern part of the map area, and its northernmost part underwent collapse to form Reporoa Caldera. The Paeroa Fault block is the largest exposed fault block within...

This dataset contains major and trace element compositions for a sample of basalt recovered from Rangitoto Island, New Zealand. Both bulk rock and microanalytical observations are made and presented. Electron probe microanalysis (EPMA) results detail the compositions of individual phases within the basalt including olivine, clinopyroxene, plagioclase feldspar, glass, and polyphase microcrystalline groundmass. Laser ablation inductively-coupled plasma mass spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS) results detail trace element compositions for the glass as well as on select olivine grains. X-Ray fluorescence (XRF) data detailing major and minor element oxide concentrations were gathered using bulk rock powders. Additional tables detail...

The dataset includes whole-rock geochemistry and 40Ar-39Ar geochronology for Pleistocene to Oligocene volcanic and intrusive rocks. These data support figures and tables in days 2 and 3 of the Field-trip guide to continental arc to rift volcanism of the southern Rocky Mountains-Southern Rocky Mountain, Taos Plateau, and Jemez Mountains volcanic fields of southern Colorado and northern New Mexico (Thompson and others, 2022). Additional 40Ar-39Ar geochronology data are included for age reported in the Geologic map of Ute Mountain quadrangle (Thompson and others, 2014b) and the Geologic map of Sunshine quadrangle (Thompson and others, 2014a). Other samples not associated with any of these referenced publications are...
In the western Grand Canyon, fluvial terraces and pediment surfaces, both associated with a Pleistocene basalt flow, document Quaternary aggradation and downcutting by the Colorado River, illuminate the river's response to overload and the end of overload, and allow calibration of soil-carbonate stages and determination of downcutting rates. Four downcutting?aggradation cycles are present. Each begins with erosion of older deposits to form a new river channel in which a characteristic suite of deposits is laid down. The current cycle (I) started 700 yr B.P. The oldest (IV) includes the 603,000 � 8000 to 524,000 � 7000 yr Black Ledge basalt flow, emplaced when the river channel was 30 m higher than it is now. The...
