We're Barely Listening to the U.S.Most Dangerous #Volcanoes | @NYTScience

Red tape and regulations have made it difficult for volcanologists to build monitoring stations along Mount Hood and other active volcanoes. The article shares where US active volcanoes are located and  includes coloful images.

Share the Story of an Expedition | @ArcGISStoryMaps #tutorial | #travelstory #StoryMap

A 30 minute, step-by-step tutorial on how to build a story map based on a scientific expedition to a Guatemalan volcano. The tutorial is divided into eight sections--Study an example; Gather visual content; Create an outline; Add content blocks; Work with media; Work with maps; Review the story; and Publish and share.

What Will Happen When Earth's Plates Stop? | @NatGeo | #platetectonics

A 2018 study suggests the mantle will cool to such an extent that the plates will grind to a halt in 1.45 billion years--changing life on Earth as we know it.

A #tectonic plate is dying under #Oregon. Here's why that matters | @NatGeo | #Cascadia #geology

Berkely student William Hawley suggests that the there might be a tear in the Juan de Fuca tectonic plate in a recent study.

After tens of millions of years slowly slipping under the western margin of North America, the Juan de Fuca tectonic plate is nearing the end of its existence. Scientists watching its last days have found a tiny tear deep below central Oregon where the plate is ripping apart, offering clues as to how a dying plate twists and deforms as it is swallowed up by a continent. Ultimately, the tear might be the cause of recent earthquakes off the American coast and a string of volcanoes that stretches across Oregon.

We're #volcano scientists – here are six volcanoes we'll be watching out for in #2018 | @ConversationUS

After a brief primer on observed volcanic activity and a comparison of historic Tambora and Toba eruptions, three scientists share six volcanoes--from Kirishima, Japan to Kilauea, US--to watch during 2018

Eruptions, Earthquakes & Emissions | Smithsonian Global Volcanism Program | #tectonics #animation

The "Eruptions, Earthquakes, & Emissions" web application (or "E3") is a time-lapse animation of volcanic eruptions and earthquakes since 1960. It also shows volcanic gas emissions (sulfur dioxide, SO2) since 1978 — the first year satellites were available to provide global monitoring of SO2. Similar to Alan Jone's Seismic/Eruption desktop program.
