Two studies, conducted 40 years apart, show how combining field observations and thermal modeling can reconstruct the history of massive lava flows and how they altered the surrounding landscape.
Air from thousands of kilometers away spiraled down to drape the Pacific Northwest in blistering heat.
Geodetic measurements indicate that Three Sisters Volcano uplifted by almost 300 millimeters in the past 25 years without significant anomalies at the surface.
Oregon and Washington residents will receive an alert on their cell phones if they are in danger from an incoming quake.
A new optical fiber interferometry strain sensor tested off the Oregon coast holds promising prospects for seafloor geodesy.
A sensitive underwater microphone captures the sounds of methane, a potent greenhouse gas, escaping into waters off the coast of Oregon. Using this sound, researchers can estimate the bubbles’ sizes.
Some towns have known for a decade to prepare; others learned as little as a year ago about the event and what it might bring to their locale.
Social media and the value of communicating field experiences to the public
New mathematical approach lets researchers analyze potentially unstable slopes in three dimensions without testing every possible landslide shape.
A serendipitous discovery of tiny tunnels in lava that cooled rapidly under fresh water could help scientists search for life on Mars.
