Oregon is near the top of the national list when it comes to the number of volcanoes in the state — there are thousands within its borders. Join Professor Adam Kent, head of the geology program at OSU’s College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences and explore the Mount Hood, Newberry, Crater Lake and South Sister volcanoes, all of which are on the United States Geological Survey’s high priority list for monitoring. You’ll also explore volcanoes in Alaska, Hawaii, Japan and the Caribbean and learn how the study of geology and volcanology can help scientists understand the impact of volcanic eruptions at these sites.
