Thursday Thoughts: Potential Hazards From Future Eruptions of Mount St. Helens Volcano

With the 40th anniversary of Mount St. Helens’ 1980 eruption just a few weeks away, I have been reading up on the volcano’s history. In 1978, Rocky Crandall and Donal Mullineaux wrote this fantastic paper after years of studying the volcano.

It’s fascinating to read the research from before the 1980 eruption changed our perspective and what we know about Mount St. Helens and composite volcanic eruptions. Join me as I read a few excerpts from the paper and share a few thoughts on Mount St. Helens.
