Volcanic ash is the most widespread hazard during volcanic eruptions. It can be a nuisance, or disrupt people’s lives for days to weeks, cause breathing problems and shorten electrical systems. This talk, led by Physical Volcanologist Larry Mastin, and Outreach Coordinator Carolyn Driedger from the USGS Cascades Volcano Observatory, reviews what happened during 1980 with the eruption of Mt. St. Helen’s and discusses how the next eruption could impact our modern world. A table display with ash samples and relevant literature will also be available to view.
