The Cascade Volcanoes: A Living Laboratory for Pure and Applied Geoscience

Category: Webinars

Speaker: Isaac Pope

At the crossroads of physics, chemistry, and other fields, geoscience is an intriguing combination of subjects intertwined together by a curiosity for understanding Earth. As human populations grow, geoscience has been called upon time and time again to address a variety of questions on engineering, hazards, and natural disasters. Few places illustrate the breadth of subjects addressed by geoscience as the Cascade Volcanoes. Towering along the Cascade Magmatic Arc along the northwest United States coast, the Cascade Volcanoes are a series of quaternary composite cones that attest to the varied history of this dynamic landscape. That history, a continuation of the volcanism that has dominated the region since its commencement in the Eocene, indicates the presence of a myriad of geological hazards in the area. This dynamic environment thus provides an unparalleled laboratory for advancing pure and applied geoscience. In this presentation, we will investigate how the very nature of the dynamic Cascade Volcanoes can lead to new heights in the geological sciences.
