Summary: Volcanoes are like snow flakes—no two are alike but they have many similarities. The Cascade Range hosts more than 4,000 volcanic vents with a wide variety of eruptive styles, but commonalities help scientists monitor volcanoes and prepare populations for future eruptions.
Observatory research geologist Cynthia Gardner will share details about these geologic wonders (including nearby Glacier Peak and Mt. Baker), their history of eruptions, and how we may (or may not) be affected by future eruptions.
