Volcanoes And The Washington Cascades

with Gene Kiver


Learn where and how volcanoes work and form, along with their benefits and hazards. Dr. Gene Kiver explores the evolution of the five major active Cascade Mountain volcanoes. Can we predict an eruption? What volcano is next? What other Cascade volcanoes have erupted in the 19th and 20th century?

Instructor: Dr. Gene Kiver  graduated from Case-Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio and later from the University of Wyoming in Laramie where he received his Doctorate in Geology.

Glacial geology of the western United States, geothermal ice caves on Mts. Rainier and Baker, national park geology, speleology, and the Missoula Floods are his main professional interests. Research and volunteer activity with the Ice Age Floods Institute continues today. He has co-authored two recent books, On the Trail of The Ice Age Floods and Washington Rocks!.
