The 1980's and 1990's were marked by frequent worldwide destructive volcanic
eruptions. Significant loss of life and property during eruptions, and extensive media coverage of
volcanic events around the globe have brought volcanic processes and hazards increasingly to the
forefront of scientific, governmental, and public attention (e.g., Casadevall, 1994; Pringle, 1994).
A result of these circumstances has been an increasing number of scientific and popular
publications dealing with active volcanism. The purpose of this bibliography is to provide a
comprehensive source of literature published between 1990 and 1997 relevant to all of the
Holocene and fumarolic Pleistocene volcanoes in Alaska, the conterminous United States, and
Canada. The period between 1990 and 1997 was chosen for two reasons. First, it was necessary
to define a precise period of time to keep the work tractable. Second, research for this project
began during the summer of 1996 and lasted through 1998, with minor additions into 1999.
Thus, 1997 was chosen as the younger cut-off and 1990 for the older cut-off. Literature
pertaining to Hawaiian volcanoes has been assembled into a database maintained by the
Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (Wright and Takahashi, 1984; Wright and Takahashi, 1998) and
has been excluded from this work.
We hope that this work will be useful in three ways. First, researchers interested in a
specific volcano can use the search capability of the electronic version to readily find literature
relevant to their work or determine what aspects of the volcano are in need of study. Second,
references cited within the included references are guides to older literature. Third, during times
of volcanic crisis this reference list can save time for responding scientists.
