Short summary
This study assesses the applicability of the RPAS-based photogrammetric approach for a high-definition geomorphometry of hummocks, i.e., characteristic morphological features in the surface of debris avalanche deposits caused by a gigantic sector collapse of a volcanic mountain body. Satellite-based topographic data were also utilized to estimate the source volume of the sector collapse. We provide new, detailed insights into the characteristics of the debris avalanche and potential hazards.
