Detailed Description

Following unrest that began on September 23, 2004 and the steam and ash eruptions in early October, extrusion of solid magma typified the 2004-2008 eruption at Mount St. Helens. The magma is unusually gas poor and crystal rich.  Several meters of pulverized, variably sintered rock commonly coat the emergent lava spines, lending them a smooth appearance.  Other spines have broken apart to become surrounded by hot talus fans. Time lapse photography captures dome growth and thermal imagery tracks the temperature of emerging spines from October 2004 to September 2005.
