Abstract:
Permafrost phenomena like active rock glaciers are increasingly mapped and monitored with close range sensing techniques. Multi temporal and precise point clouds in high spatial resolution as they can be acquired by Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS), offer promising opportunities for detailed morphological analysis. Current research focuses on the quantification of morphological changes using objects moving with the surface of a creeping rock glacier. This data publication contains georeferenced (WGS 84 / UTM zone 32N; EPSG:32632) point clouds covering the tongue of the Äußeres Hochebenkar rock glacier located about 2 km south of Obergurgl. Point clouds were acquired using a TLS from different scan positions around the rock glacier during the Innsbruck Summer School of Alpine Research - "Close Range Sensing Techniques in Alpine Terrain".
