A screen capture from a Baker ash deposit simulation.
A new page has been added to the Monitoring tab. A USGS website now simulates the ash plume and distribution of ash if the largest post-glacial Baker eruption, the 6600-year-old ‘BA’, occurred under today’s wind conditions.
Go to the ‘Baker Ash Today’ page.
Airborne ash plume:
A simulated Baker ash plume 12 hours after eruption. Note: in this simulation, Seattle is unaffected, while Whatcom County and the Lower Mainland of British Columbia are.
