Digital Data Set of Volcano Hazards for Active Cascade Volcanoes, Washington

By Steve P. Schilling


In 1995, scientists at the Cascades Volcano Observatory completed hazard assessments for the five active volcanoes in Washington. The five studies included Mount Adams (Scott and others, 1995), Mount Baker (Gardner and others, 1995), Glacier Peak (Waitt and others, 1995), Mount Rainier (Hoblitt and others, 1995), and Mount St. Helens (Wolfe and Pierson, 1995). Twenty Geographic Information System (GIS) data sets have been created that represent the hazard information from the assessments.
