The Investigating Geophysical Unrest at Sierra NegrA (IGUANA) experiment was designed to monitor seismic activity associated with magmatic unrest at Sierra Negra volcano, Galapagos Islands, Ecuador. In late 2017, it was apparent that Sierra Negra was likely approaching a new eruption, and that the volcanic edifice was critically stressed. The experiment captured seismic broadband data during the final approach to eruption, the eruption onset on 26 June 2018, and co-eruptive deflation.
The dataset contains 3-component seismic data from seismometers deployed for one year Sept 204-August 2015 following the dyke intrusion from Bardarbunga which led to a 6 month long eruption at Holuhraun. The data is in miniseed format, archived at SEIS-UK and IRIS. The locations of all the microearthquakes we have identified from this data are published in Supplementary Information of Ágústsdóttir et al. (2016) [approx. 31,000 events from the Bardarbunga dyke], in Greenfield et al. [approx. 70,000 events from the Askja-Herðubreið area], and in Hudson et al. (2017), where they are publicly available for download. Ágústsdóttir, T., Woods, J., Greenfield, T., Green, R. G., White, R. S., Winder, T., Brandsdóttir, B., Steinthórsson, S. & Soosalu, H. (2016).

The dataset has been published open-access in Ilyinskaya et al. (2017), Earth and Planetary Science Letters, 472, 309-322 https://doi.org/10.1016/j.epsl.2017.05.025 This study quantifies the air quality impact of Holuhraun eruption 2014-2015 on populated areas in Iceland. Specifically we trace the evolution of the plume chemistry from the eruption site to 2 key areas of population: Reykjahlid, which is the nearest municipality to Holuhraun at 100 km distance, and Reykjavik capital area, which hosts ~60% of Iceland's population, 250 km distance. This dataset is the full chemical analysis of filter pack samples of volcanic gas and aerosol, including trace species (e.g. heavy metals).
This dataset contains 204 ascending and 300 descending Sentinel-1 geocoded unwrapped interferograms and coherence, and 70 ascending and 102 descending Re-sampled Single Look Complex (RSLC) images for each acquisition date. This data set also includes the original size Digital Elevation Model (DEM) used during InSAR processing. Data used by: Moore et al, 2019, “The 2017 Eruption of Erta 'Ale Volcano, Ethiopia: Insights into the Shallow Axial Plumbing System of an Incipient Mid-Ocean Ridge”.
