  • Columnar Basalt - Geologist explains spectacular stone columns

    Formation of Columnar Basalt is quickly described in this 2 Minute Geology episode. Columnar Basalt is the result of cooling and cracking of an unusually thick basaltic lava flow. Columns are often 50 feet high or more! The Columbia River Basalt Group of Washington and Oregon (USA) is a stack of more than 300 individual lava flows. The flows issued forth from deep fissures that began forming 17 million years ago in southeast Washington and northeast Oregon. Columns are well-developed in some of the flows and non-existant in many others. The Roza Flow is the most famous Columbia River Basalt flow for column formation. Notable columns around the world include Devil's Tower in Wyoming and Giant's Causeway in Ireland. This episode begins with Nick at the foot of some Columnar Basalt in ...

  • Geology of Seattle and the Puget Sound

    The hills and lakes of Seattle, Washington are a direct result of multiple Puget Lobe advances during the Ice Age. Beneath the drumlins, outwash, glacial troughs, and scattered glacial erratics lies the Seattle Fault, an active fault which has produced numerous magnitude 6 or higher earthquakes since the Ice Age. Interstate 90 exposes much of this geology in its first few miles heading east from downtown. The freeway begins on old tidelands that were filled by early residents of Seattle. Hills composed of soft glacial deposits were moved and dumped into Elliot Bay to make new land for a growing city. Today’s SODO district - including stadiums for the Seattle Seahawks and Seattle Mariners - sits on filled tidelands that are especially prone to seismic shaking during the next big ear...

Notable columns around the world include Devil's Tower in Wyoming and Giant's Causeway in Ireland. This episode begins with Nick at the foot of some Columnar Basalt in the Columbia Wildlife Refuge northeast of Othello, WA. The Elephant Mountain basalt flow is featured - a flow that has particularly beautiful columns, although the columns are thinner than Roza columns. This region - the Drumheller Channels - was hit hard by the Ice Age Floods that swept through the area between 17,000 and 15,000 years ago. The floods took many columns away, but these majestic columns remain. Lower Crab Creek is nearby - an old course of the Columbia River. The episode continues with Nick climbing to the top of the Elephant Mountain flow. The tops of columns have well-defined polygonal shapes: pentagons, hexagons, octagons, etc. Cracks with these shapes in nature usually indicate contraction of surfaces - in this case, a cooling lava flow that took perhaps up to 100 years to completely cool. Columnar Basalt forms in the lower section of basalt flows - know as the Colonnade. Higher in basalt flows, a more densely clustered sets of joints and fractures - the Entablature - suggests a more intricate and complicated cooling history of the lava long ago.

"I don't know what it is, but I just want it to stop." The booming in Clintonville continued Monday and Tuesday nights and into Wednesday morning, eventually prompting Van Beek to take her three sons to her father's home, 10 minutes away, so they could get some uninterrupted sleep. There have been no reports of injury or damage, despite some residents saying they could feel the ground roll beneath their feet.rnrnCity officials say they have investigated every possible human cause. They checked water, sewer and gas lines, contacted the military about any exercises in the area, reviewed permits for mining explosives and inspected a dam next to city hall. They even tested methane levels at the landfill in case the gas was spontaneously exploding. "People in the area are certainly frustrated," City Administrator Lisa Kuss said. rsoe..

Johnston and 56 others in the eruption cast a pall over one of the most dramatic geologic moments in American history." Public domain film from the United States Geological Survery (USGS). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mount_St._Helens Mount St. Helens is an active stratovolcano located in Skamania County, Washington, in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. It is 96 miles (154 km) south of Seattle, Washington, and 50 miles (80 km) northeast of Portland, Oregon. Mount St. Helens takes its English name from the British diplomat Lord St Helens, a friend of explorer George Vancouver who made a survey of the area in the late 18th century. The volcano is located in the Cascade Range and is part of the Cascade Volcanic Arc, a segment of the Pacific Ring of Fire that includes over 160 active volcanoes. This volcano is well known for its ash explosions and pyroclastic flows. Mount St. Helens is most notorious for its catastrophic eruption on May 18, 1980, at 8:32 a.m. PDT, the deadliest and most economically destructive volcanic event in the history of the United States. Fifty-seven people were killed; 250 homes, 47 bridges, 15 miles (24 km) of railways, and 185 miles (298 km) of highway were destroyed. A massive debris avalanche triggered by an earthquake measuring 5.1 on the Richter scale caused an eruption that reduced the elevation of the mountain's summit from 9,677 ft (2,950 m) to 8,365 ft (2,550 m), replacing it with a 1 mile (1.6 km) wide horseshoe-shaped crater. The debris avalanche was up to 0.7 cubic miles (2.9 km3) in volume. The Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument was created to preserve the volcano and allow for its aftermath to be scientifically studied. As with most other volcanoes in the Cascade Range, Mount St. Helens is a large eruptive cone consisting of lava rock interlayered with ash, pumice, and other deposits. The mountain includes layers of basalt and andesite through which several domes of dacite lava have erupted. The largest of the dacite domes formed the previous summit, and off its northern flank sat the smaller Goat Rocks dome. Both were destroyed in the 1980 eruption... On March 20, 1980, Mount St. Helens experienced a magnitude 4.2 earthquake;[2] and, on March 27, steam venting started. By the end of April, the north side of the mountain had started to bulge. On May 18, with little warning, a second earthquake, of magnitude 5.1, triggered a massive collapse of the north face of the mountain. It was the largest known debris avalanche in recorded history. The magma in St. Helens burst forth into a large-scale pyroclastic flow that flattened vegetation and buildings over 230 square miles (600 km2). More than 1.5 million metric tons of sulfur dioxide were released into the atmosphere. On the Volcanic Explosivity Index scale, the eruption was rated a five (a Plinian eruption). The collapse of the northern flank of St. Helens mixed with ice, snow, and water to create lahars (volcanic mudflows). The lahars flowed many miles down the Toutle and Cowlitz Rivers, destroying bridges and lumber camps. A total of 3,900,000 cubic yards (3,000,000 m3) of material was transported 17 miles (27 km) south into the Columbia River by the mudflows. For more than nine hours, a vigorous plume of ash erupted, eventually reaching 12 to 16 miles (20 to 27 km) above sea level. The plume moved eastward at an average speed of 60 miles per hour (100 km/h) with ash reaching Idaho by noon. Ashes from the eruption were found collecting on top of cars and roofs next morning, as far as the city of Edmonton in Alberta, Canada. By about 5:30 p.m. on May 18, the vertical ash column declined in stature, and less severe outbursts continued through the night and for the next several days. The St. Helens May 18 eruption released 24 megatons of thermal energy; it ejected more than 0.67 cubic miles (2.79 km3) of material. The removal of the north side of the mountain reduced St. Helens' height by about 1,300 feet (400 m) and left a crater 1 mile (1.6 km) to 2 miles (3.2 km) wide and 0.5 miles (800 m) deep, with its north end open in a huge breach. The eruption killed 57 people, nearly 7,000 big game animals (deer, elk, and bear), and an estimated 12 million fish from a hatchery. It destroyed or extensively damaged over 200 homes, 185 miles (298 km) of highway and 15 miles (24 km) of railways. Between 1980 and 1986, activity continued at Mount St. Helens, with a new lava dome forming in the crater. Numerous small explosions and dome-building eruptions occurred. From December 7, 1989, to January 6, 1990, and from November 5, 1990, to February 14, 1991, the mountain erupted with sometimes huge clouds of ash...

This is a clip from "National Parks Exploration Series: Grand Canyon." In spite of the title the film covers the entire Colorado Plateau. In this clip you'll see Geologist Wayne Ranney and Ranger Poe explaining the in-depth geology of Bryce and Zion National Parks. The "in-depth" is what makes this film unusually interpretive. In most of these travelogue type films, writers and directors take the "Birds fly in the sky." approach - which is to say that the narration is NO more in-depth than an audio description (head-set audio designed so that vision impaired people can hear about what sighted people are watching). This genre also features wall-to-wall music to fill in the huge dead zones such simple narration creates. This results in products that may (if visuals and music are inspirational enough) create opportunities for emotional connections but seldom offer any intellectual stimulation for anybody older than 4 years of age. Everybody knows that "Birds fly in the sky" and showing a picture of flying birds offer little to that understanding. Without the intellectual component it is NOT interpretation. Indeed without the intellectual component it is not even information and may only serve as orientation. Unfortunately many interpretive centers have spent $ millions to contract such "orientation films" and they are widely popular. Questions: 1. Why? A) Few want to learn anything but all like to see pretty pictures set to music? B) International appeal of America's natural/historical treasures means multilingual captioning/dubbing and detailed science or history can only be easily understood by English speakers? C) Filmmakers get Bachelor's of Arts while interpreters get Bachelor's.of Science? D) [your better answer goes here] 2. When you invite visitors to attend your live presentation (only being offered now) how often do they choose to watch the 22-minute film offered every half-hour instead? What reasoning if any do they offer? 3.

The development of graceful river meanders and oxbow lakes is explained in this short Two Minute Geology video. Entrenched Meanders are also explained. Entrenched Meanders form when tectonic uplift begins underneath an meandering river system - causing the river to carve a meandering river canyon. In addition to the Yakima River Canyon in Washington, the San Juan River also features excellent entrenched meanders at Gooseneck State Park in Utah. This episode begins with Nick standing next to a sweeping curve of the Yakima River downstream of Ellensburg, Washington. The concept of meanders being old age features is established. When rivers are youthful, they are typically linear, but as the river ages, its subtle curves become more exaggerated meanders as time goes by. The meanders are constantly shifting their locations due to continued erosion on the outside of meander curves - and continued deposition of sediment on the inside of the curves. The final stage of meander development is a cut off of the meander that almost loops back completely on itself, and the river abandons the meander - cuts a new straight channel - and an ox-bow lake is formed at the abandoned meander. Since the Yakima River has beautiful, well-formed meanders here, it is clear that central Washington was flat long ago - just like the Mississippi River system today. The episode then switches to Nick at an overlook vista on the western rim of the Yakima River Canyon. Since the meandering river is now at the bottom of a canyon, the concept of plate tectonic uplift is introduced. The canyon cutting here is a younger event than the river meander development. Regional uplift in central Washington is due to the development of the Yakima Fold and Thrust Belt - and area of densely packed folds and faults that show that this area has been under crustal compression during the last 10 million years. The compression is the force that drives the tectonic uplift that has caused the river to become energized. The river has held its position against an uplifting section of Columbia River Basalt layers now on display in the walls of the beautiful Yakima River Canyon. The Yakima River has been here longer than the Yakima River Canyon! Filmed in November, 2012. Episode written by Nick Zentner and Tom Foster. Video, Sound, & Editing: Tom Foster

A recent study shows a strip of land that runs from Alabama to North Carolina and sits about 9 to 12 miles below the surface of the ocean is left over from Africa. It creates a magnetic variation called the Brunswick Magnetic Anomaly. Around 250 million years ago, the North American and African continents used to be a connected landmass. A recent study shows a strip of land that runs from Alabama to North Carolina and sits about 9 to 12 miles below the surface of the ocean is left over from Africa. It creates a magnetic variation called the Brunswick Magnetic Anomaly. According to Robert Hatcher, a geologist from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville: "There was an attempt to rip away Florida and southern Georgia. So you have a failed rift there. We know there's a suture there between African crust and newer crust from the Appalachians. There are pieces of crust that started in Africa." One theory about the Brunswick Magnetic Anomaly suggests it is an even older rift that it was formed by the original collision of two tectonic plates when North America split off from the super continent Pangea. The magnetic properties of the rock are caused by high concentrations of minerals like magnetite, which give scientists clues about the movement of the outer most layer of our planet's skeletal structure. Understanding the movement of the plates can be applied to oil, gas and gold exploration.
