Speaking of Washington state Mount Rainier is probably the most dangerous volcano in the Cascades range (it is also one of Washington’s active volcanos). One of the problems with this volcano, like Mount Baker, is that it is covered in ice and snow. Thus, lahars would be a huge issue.

    Many hazards come with living near volcanoes. Volcanic eruptions can send ash and volcanic debris into the air. Heat from the volcano can melt snow or ice and cause dangerous mudflows and debris flows called lahars. Molten rock called lava can erupt and flow downhill, destroying everything in its path.   This lesson plan is part of the "Living with a Volcano in Your Backyard" curriculum, created through a partnership between Mount Rainier National Park and the US Geological Survey Cascades Volcano Observatory. Contact Information. Email us about this lesson plan.

    Mount Rainier is one of about two dozen recently active volcanoes in the Cascade Range, a volcanic arc formed by subduction of the Juan de Fuca plate beneath the North American ism in this arc began at least 37 million years ago and has continued intermittently to the present. During that time, numerous volcanoes have formed, flourished, died, and eroded away, generally leaving. Students can complete the “Topographic Maps and Mount Rainier” lesson to search for glacial landforms (see resources for curriculum idea) or the “Fire and Ice” lesson to learn about glacier/lava flow interactions from the Living with a Volcano in your Backyard curriculum.
