A MultiGAS instrument measures gases at Newberry Volcano

Scientists use a MultiGAS instrument (gray, hard-shell case) to measure gas compositions from the East Lake hot spring in the Newberry caldera. The photo was taken on August 3, 2020 just after sunrise. The vapor above the hot spring and lake is typical for cool mornings and is not visible later in the day.

Lake-Ice Quakes from Newberry Volcano

The popping and cracking of ice in lakes within the Newberry Volcano caldera is picked up by local seismic stations, such as Central Pumice Cone. The lake-ice quakes do not resemble standard volcanic low-frequency or high-frequency events and are sporadically observed in the winter at other ice-covered lakes in Yellowstone, Long Valley, and elsewhere.

Aerial view of lakes and cinder cone at Newberry Volcano Caldera.

A view looking northeast across the central caldera of Newberry Volcano.  Paulina Lake is in the foreground and East Lake is in the distance.  The Central Pumice Cone lies between the two lakes. Near the bottom of the photo at the south edge of Paulina Lake, the two hills are named the Lakeshore Domes. The volcano is covered in snow and the lakes have ice on their surface

Extent of Newberry lavas including approximate ages of surficial flows

Extending approximately 75 miles north to south and 27 miles east to west, Newberry Volcano and its broad apron of lavas (light yellow shaded area) cover a total area of almost 1,200 square miles, making it the largest volcano of the Cascades volcanic chain. Its lavas stretch north beyond Smith Rock State Park, and south almost to Fort Rock State Natural Area. The town of
