Mount Rainier: An Interactive Learning Module
This module studies the hazards posed by Mount Rainier, a mainland volcano near Seattle, Washington. The lessons explain the geographical context of Mount Rainier, how people prepare for the worst near the volcano (including hazard area identification and emergency and evacuation plans), hazards from eruption (tephra fall, lava flow, and pyroclastic flow), and hazards without eruption (sector collapse, glacial outburst flooding, and lahars).
