Explosive Day 37 Years Ago
πŸŒ‹
Last week the USGS marked the 37th Anniversary of the eruption of Mt St Helens. It was the most devastating eruption in U.S. history. Two years later, the USGS founded the Cascades Volcano Observatory to monitor Mount St. Helens and all the Cascades Volcanoes.

80 minutes of class time is made easier when you have teammates! #takeoverthursday #earthscienceclass #naturalhazards

Today you can meet us at the MULTI-HAZARD EARLY WARNING CONFERENCE #MHEWS #DRR #UNESCO #UNISDR #MEXICOGP2017 #SWITCH2SENDAI #NaturalHazards

As a self-described klutz my days of walking just got a little more challenging.

Terribly haunting & brilliant image. Hopeful that this summer Bayley & I will get to hike throughout the Cascades.

A Lonely Sentinel β€” πŸŒ‹
Seismic station PLWL, with Peulik Volcano in the background, is the main repeater for the Peulik monitoring network located on Whale Mountain, Becharof National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska. It has a seismometer buried nearby to record earthquake and volcano activity. The USGS Alaska Volcano Observatory has ~200 seismic stations in Alaska spread over almost 2000 miles from Wrangell-St. Elias National Park & Preserve to Little Sitkin near the end of the Aleutian Islands. πŸŒ‹
The USGS Volcano Hazards Program monitors volcanoes to detect signs of change that forewarn of volcanic reawakening. When a volcano begins showing new or unusual signs of activity, monitoring data, such as gas, ground deformation and satellite imagery, help answer critical questions necessary for assessing and then communicating timely information about volcanic hazards.
πŸŒ‹
This type of knowledge helps scientists figure out the possible types of volcanic activity and the associated hazards to people. Knowing the hazards helps officials determine which real-time warnings are needed to prevent loss of life and property.

In the months following one of the most destructive hurricanes of the past decade, UNC researchers had to act fast. Using an NSF RAPID Grant, they’re testing water quality in Lumberton β€” one of the hardest-hit places during the storm.
