  • Description

    American scientists are keeping a close check on volcanic activity in the Cascade Mountain Range, in the far north-west of the United States.

    The scientists are using a specially equipped Oregon Army National Guard aircraft to make infra-red scans of the mountains every ten days. The latest sweep took place on Sunday (3 August).

    Mount Baker, one of ten major volcanoes in the chain, is receiving particular attention. It is the most active mountain so far, and lies ninety miles north of Seattle ... just 15 miles from Canada.

    Several so called "hot-spots" have been detected and now the major concern centres around melting snow packs on the mountain's side and the increased run-off caused by the hot-spots.
