Glacier Peak in north-central Washington state is not prominently visible from any major metropolitan centers, and so its attractions, as well as its hazards, tend to be overlooked. Yet, Glacier Peak has produced larger and more explosive eruptions than any other Washington volcano except Mount St. Helens. In the past 14,000 years, Glacier Peak has erupted at least a dozen times, most recently around ... Full description.

Natural hazards such as earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanoes affect both coastal and inland areas. Long-term data from these events, including photographs, can be used to establish the past record of natural hazard event occurrences. These data are also important for planning, response, and mitigation of future events. The National Geophysical Data Center plays a major role in post-event data collection. ... Full description.

This online simulator lets students observe what happens to volcanic eruptions as the silica content of the magma changes. Operating a slider changes the percentage of silica, and the display shows the rock type, type of eruption, and type of volcanic edifice. It also displays temperature, pressure, viscosity of the lava, and seismic activity. A brief tutorial describes how to use the simulator and ... Full description.
