Eruption simulation links repaired

The Mount Baker eruption simulation links have been updated; you will find them here: https://mbvrc.wordpress.com/monitoring/todays-mount-baker-eruption-simulation-from-usgs/.

This model simulates a repeat of the largest eruption at Baker that is preserved in the geologic record as it would behave today, using the latest NOAA wind data. This data is updated 3 times per day.  This models the 6600 year old “BA ash eruption”, with a duration of 6 hours and with a plume reaching 8 km into the atmosphere (about 5 km above the summit of Mount Baker). It is instructive to return to this page as weather changes in the Baker area- where might ash fall on any given day?
