Oregon is one of the most volcanic U.S. states — there are thousands of volcanoes in our state. Most are inactive — but Oregon has four major volcanoes on the USGS’s high priority list for volcano monitoring: Mount Hood, Newberry Volcano, Crater Lake and South Sister. Geologist Adam Kent will share how the tools of geology and volcanology can help us understand what eruptions at these locations might look like and the hazards they might produce. Come take a tour of Oregon’s volcanoes — with short excursions to Alaska, Hawaii, Japan and the Caribbean.
