Wenatchee Valley Erratics Chapter to Meet

Wenatchee Valley Erratics Chapter of the Ice Age Floods Institute will meet at 7 p.m., Tuesday, December 8, at the Wenatchee Valley Museum, 127 South Mission, Wenatchee. Why do volcanoes erupt? Why do some erupt explosively and others gush lavas? Guest speaker, Dr. Wendy Bohrson, CWU Distinguished Professor of Geology, will discuss “How Volcanoes Work and Volcanism in the Pacific Northwest.” Why are the Cascade volcanoes where they are, and what is the source of their magma along the Cascadia subduction zone? What happened at the Mt. Mazama eruption that later formed Crater Lake? Recent research may provide clues about conditions required to catalyze such a large, explosive eruption that blanketed the Pacific Northwest with pinkish-white ash. Don’t miss this talk, by an internationally revered research volcanologist!

The program is free and open to the public. For an overview of the Ice Age Floods and more information on the Ice Age Floods Institute, see and
