Eruptions

GSA 2009 pre-update

I did a really terrible job of updating during the Geological Society of America meeting – mostly because (a) I was way too busy, (b) an iffy internet connection at my home and (c) a lack of concentration.

However, there was quite a bit of interesting info I heard which I’ll likely post tomorrow including:

  • The northern Cascades of the US are filled with calderas.
  • The eruption of Kasatochi was quite impressive (if you didn’t think so already).
  • Bubbles at Erebus come from deep down.
  • Holocene volcanism in Colorado.
  • Thanks to all the people I met this week as well, including Callan Bentley, Tuff Cookie, Ron Schott and others.

    Volcanoes in Colorado is just about the most interesting thing on the planet to me. The first episode of my TV show is gonna be about that (if I ever get busy making it)

    Practically no one knows they’re there.
