Volume estimation of the 1998 flank collapse at Casita volcano, Nicaragua : a comparison of photogrammetric and conventional techniques

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



In october 1998, a precipitation-triggered flank collapse occurred at Casita volcano, leading to a devastating lahar. In this paper the failure volume was calculated using a range of methods. Several pre- and post-failure digital elevation models (DEMs) were created, based on photogrammetric, cartometric and surveying data. The best estimate for the failure volume is based on a vegetation-corrected pre-failure DEM, generated using automated digital photogrammetry, and a post-failure surface based on a field survey carried out with a Total Station. It is demonstrated that values reported in the literature must be regarded with caution
