The Pacific Northwest is a spectacular and geologically active region, where we engage in a series of fieldwork-based case studies. By the end of the field trip, you will have an appreciation of the range and scale of geological hazards, where and when they are likely to happen, the impact on human society and aspects of hazards forecasting, management and mitigation. Hazards covered include volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, tsunami, drought, river flooding, coastal hazards and landslides.  Highlights include visiting the sites of the 1980 Mount St Helens eruption and earthquake-prone areas of downtown Seattle.
