This dataset contains forest structure measurements for a wooded area where the liana Hendra helix (common ivy) is present. The dataset comprises two overlapping 3D point clouds for a small wooded area covering nearly 18000 m2 of Bramcote Hills Park (Nottinghamshire, UK) for a sample of trees infested with liana as well as a non-infested sample of trees. This datasets was acquired using a terrestrial Light Detection And Ranging (LiDAR) scanner on 13 January 2023, as part of a study assessing the diversity and composition of soil and litter dwelling organisms associated with liana infestations within forests. The work was supported by the Natural Environment Research Council (Grant NE/X018083/1). Full details about this dataset can be found at https://doi.org/10.5285/174ef670-6db9-4fb9-9961-27b2cee57adc
This dataset comprises co-aligned hyperspectral and LiDAR data collected of European beech (Fagus sylvatica) forest within core protected areas of the UNESCO Rhӧn Biosphere Reserve, Germany. Data was collected using the Headwall Hyperspec Nano sensor flown from a unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) in September 2020. The dataset comprises image and LiDAR data of four sites, each approximately 8ha in size. The study forests were subject to the extreme drought event that impacted central Europe in 2018/2019 and this project sought to collect data to enable individual tree and stand level assessment of the response (canopy damage and defoliation) of European beech trees to extreme drought events. The hyperspectral images available in this dataset have approx. 5cm pixel size with an associated LiDAR dataset and are suitable for identifying individual trees and the degree of canopy damage (defoliation, discolouration, and mortality) sustained by individuals/stands within the forest. The work was supported by the Natural Environment Research Council (Grant NE/V00929X/1). Full details about this dataset can be found at https://doi.org/10.5285/23d6a61c-c1cf-4c1b-a65c-f3fe42fc0e76
This data pack contains information from geotechnical and contaminated land investigations carried out at potential sites for the development of the UK Geoenergy Observatory in Cheshire. Following these investigations, a decision was made to move the proposed observatory to Thornton Science Park. None of the sites discussed in this data pack are in scope for development as part of the Cheshire Observatory. In total 16 holes were drilled using a variety of techniques. The only hole to be drilled using rotary coring was BHA-101. This borehole was cored extensively and logged with wireline geophysical tools. As such this is the main focus of the data pack. BHA-101 was drilled to TD of 121.2 m between 19-Nov-2020 and 09-Dec-2020. Drill core was collected from 51 m – 121 mm with 100 mm diameter. This initial data release pack from BGS contains composite and digital wireline logs alongside daily driller's borehole records.
The initial borehole information pack from the TH0424 Ground Investigation Borehole drilled as part of the UK Geoenergy Observatories (UKGEOS) Cheshire facility. TH0424 was drilled to TD of 101 m between the 08-Nov-2021 and 30-Nov-2021. Drill core was collected from 2 m – 101 mm with 100 mm diameter. This initial data release pack from BGS contains composite and digital wireline logs alongside daily driller's borehole records. This information pack also contains the Initial Core Scan dataset from the BGS Core Scanning Facility (https://doi.org/10.5285/b06d44e6-324d-4e19-bf78-a4520b9b87c8).
