2/2 Forecasting Eruptions at a Submarine Volcano Offshore of Oregon.

 

Be ready to dive into the ocean in an ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) as we journey to the Axial Seamount off the mouth of the Columbia River. Volcanoes can be fascinating landforms to observe and research but what about underwater volcanoes? How are they monitored and explored?

The next Columbia River Maritime Museum’s event on Thursday, February 2nd will host Dr. Bill Chadwick, a geologist with Oregon State University and NOAA. Chadwick will share his experiences about his work at Axial Seamount just off the mouth of the Columbia River and explain the 2011 eruption. Forecasting underwater volcano eruptions is not an easy task but Chadwick and his partners have succeeded.

Doors open at 6:00 pm, presentation begins at 7:00 at Fort George Brewery – Lovell Building. Seasonal beers on tap, food, and other beverages are available for purchase. For more information call 503-325-2323.
