Fire Below US CD-Rom
A May 2nd earthquake near Seattle. Tremors at Mt. Rainier. Ongoing earthquake swarms at the Mono Lakes region in California. Could the West Coast be in for another volcanic eruption like the one at Mount St. Helens in 1980
This new CD-ROM puts you at ground zero during the violent 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens. A multimedia journey through the eruption that shook Washington State, with video and a detailed interactive eruption timeline that walks you through the destruction and its aftermath
A wonderful introduction for those who have never been to the monument or for those who want to revisit the area electronically.
"The information in 'Exploring the Fire Below Us' is pertinent to everyone, because volcanoes have an impact on our whole planet," says director Lienau. "In the west, we face dangers from the physical mudslides and earthquakes; but in the midwest, people can be affected by ash fall and in the east, by changes in the weather. It really doesn't matter where you live; you should be aware of what volcanoes can do."
