Baker field guide published on line

For those of you who don’t subscribe to the Mount Baker Volcano Research Center website, here’s some news.

A field guide to Mount Baker deposits is available via link from the MBVRC site. The link takes you to a guide written by Dave Tucker and Kevin Scott for a Northwest Geological Society field trip in September, 2010. The guide describes Holocene lavas, lahars, and tephras in the Baker River valley, and the Pleistocene Kulshan caldera and Pinus Lava flow on the northeast flank of Mount Baker.

The trip guide is written by Dave Tucker (WWU) and Kevin Scott (USGS). The two-day trip was held in September 2010. It visited the Baker Lake side on Day 1- Holocene lahars, the Sulphur Creek lava flow, and tephras. Day 2 of the guide visits the volcano’s north east flank: Heather Meadows, the Kulshan caldera, and Pinus Plateau lava. The guide includes maps and color photos.
