Detailed Description

By late October 2004, a whaleback-shaped extrusion of solid lava (called a spine) emerged from Mount St. Helens' crater floor. The 2004–2008 lava dome grew by continuous extrusion of degassed lava spines that had mostly solidified at less than 1 km (0.62 mi) beneath the surface. Scientists deployed monitoring equipment and made visual observations to assess the hazards from the eruption during November 20 to December 3, 2004.
