The USGS California Volcano Observatory

It's not just earthquake country!

by Margaret T Mangan, Scientist-in-Charge, USGS CalVO

  • Volcanic Eruptions occur in the State about as frequently as the largest San Andreas Fault Zone earthquakes.
  • California's "watch list" volcanoes are dispersed throughout the State and future eruptions are inevitable--the likelihood of renewed volcanism is on the order of 1 in a few hundred to one in a few thousand annually.

If you can't make it to our evening lecture, you can join us at noon for the preview.
