  • Scientists ready to study magma formation beneath Mount St. Helens | UW Today
    St Helens said John Vidale director of the University of Washington based Pacific Northwest Seismic Network Magnetotelluric monitoring will be done at 150 sites spread over an area running 125 miles north to south and 110 miles east to west which includes both Mount Rainier and Mount Adams Most of the sites will only be used for a day with instruments recording electric and magnetic field signals that will produce images of subsurface structures Besides the UW collaborating institutions are Oregon State University Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University Rice University Columbia University the U S Geological Survey and ETH Zurich in Switzerland The work is being funded by the National Science Foundation Mount St Helens has been the most active volcano in the Cascade Range during the last 2 000 years and has erupted twice in the last 35 years It also is more accessible than most volcanoes for people and equipment making it a prime target for scientists trying to better understand how volcanoes get their supply of magma The magma that eventually comes to the surface probably originates 60 to 70 miles deep beneath St Helens at the interface between the Juan de Fuca and North American tectonic plates The plates first come into contact off the Pacific Northwest coast where the Juan de Fuca plate subducts beneath the North American plate and reaches great depth under the Cascades As the magma works its way upward it likely accumulates as a mass several miles beneath the surface As the molten rock works its way toward the surface it is possible that it gathers in a large chamber a few miles beneath the surface The path from great depth to this chamber is almost completely unknown and is a main subject of the study The project is expected to conclude in the summer of 2016 For more information contact Vidale at 310 210 2131 or vidale uw edu The lead scientist on passive seismic monitoring is Kenneth Creager a UW professor of Earth and space sciences who can be reached at 206 685 2803 or creager ess washington edu The lead scientist for magnetotelluric monitoring is Adam Schultz professor of geology and geophysics at Oregon State University 541 737 9832 or adam schultz oregonstate edu The Imaging Magma Under St Helens website is at http imush org Share this Facebook Twitter Email Print Tagged with Earth and space sciences geoscience Mount St Helens Office of News Information Browse Articles Contact Us Community Photos UW Classifieds University Photography UW Experts Search UW Today Search Browse Categories Select Category Administrative Affairs Archive Arts and Entertainment Buildings and Grounds Education Engineering Environment For UW Employees Health and Medicine Honors and Awards Learning News Releases News Roundups Politics and Government Profiles Research Science Social Science Technology UW and the Community Latest Stories Ferroelectric switching seen in biological tissues 2 hours ago Zippy electric micro cars coming to campus for sustainability research 5 hours ago UW students electric hybrid car takes 2nd
