    Collection Overview: NCALM logo

    This 2018 airborne lidar dataset was collected by NCALM for the NSF-funded project, "Topographic response to the transition from snowmelt- to rainfall- triggered extremes". This study uses lidar data to characterize hillslope and river network properties to understand how rainstorm and snowmelt runoff drive large floods, erosion, and the long-term evolution of landscapes. The survey area is located northwest of Colorado Springs, CO and covers approximately 557 km2.
