Join us for a special event on May 18th to commemorate the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens, featuring two renowned geologists - Carolyn Driedger and Richard Waitt. This event promises to be a unique opportunity to learn about the eruption from the perspectives of both scientific research and personal experience.
Richard Waitt, a geologist who worked for the United States Geological Survey (USGS) during the eruption, will be the keynote speaker at our Views and Brews session. He will be sharing insights from his latest research on the 1980 deposits, including some never-before-seen photos, as part of his upcoming publication in the USGS Professional Paper 1251. These manuscripts were originally written in the early 1980s but had to be set aside due to other pressing demands. With the COVID-19 pandemic providing an opportunity to revisit and complete the work, Waitt's presentation promises to be a fascinating deep dive into the science of the eruption.
Carolyn Driedger, another distinguished geologist, was onsite during the May 18, 1980 eruption and participated in the USGS response. She will offer insights about the human dimensions of the event, and their impacts upon residents, volcano response planning, and community preparedness across the Pacific Northwest and beyond. "Mount St. Helens 1980 eruptions resonate across the Pacific Northwest and the nation."
This event promises to be a must-attend for anyone interested in the science, history, and impact of the 1980 Mount St. Helens eruption. Come join us for a captivating evening of learning, discussion, and community.
