USGS-CVO crew digs out Mount St. Helens' September Lobe monitoring ...

Detailed Description

During the first few days of Mount St. Helen's earthquake swarm in March 2016, the September Lobe monitoring station (located on the 1980-86 dome) was buried in deep snow and not transmitting data. USGS-Cascades Volcano Observatory Technicians Kelly Swinford and Amberlee Darold dug out the station on March 30, restoring data flow and improving our ability to monitor the swarm. The view is to the northeast with Spirit Lake in the background.
