Mount Rainier Ground-Based Volcanic Hazards

map of Mount Rainier area showing hazards as different colors

Detailed Description

Simplified map of ground-based volcanic hazards from an eruption of the most threatening volcano in Cascadia: Mount Rainier, Washington. Lahars triggered by edifice collapse or magma melting snow and ice pose greater risks to communities than from an eruption itself (simplified from Hoblitt and others, 1998).
