Monitoring network at Newberry Volcano, Oregon, now fully operational.

Release Date:

Prior to 2011, only a single seismometer operated by the PNSN was in place on the flanks of the volcano. 

During August 2011, scientists and volunteers from the USGS Cascades Volcano Observatory (CVO) installed eight new real-time seismic and deformation (GPS) volcano monitoring stations around Newberry Volcano.

Over the last several months scientists at USGS-CVO and PNSN have been studying data from these new stations. They now have an adequate baseline understanding of activity at Newberry Volcano against which to compare future signs of unrest.

An Information Statement about the monitoring network was issued today.
