The Geology of Mount Shasta

September 17 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Siskiyou Field Institute, 1241 Illinois River Rd
Selma, OR 97538 United States
+ Google Map
$35 – $105

Mount Shasta is one of the largest of the High Cascade stratovolcanoes and has an eruptive history spanning 700,000 years. Two of the peak’s five major cones have grown since glaciers retreated from the mountain over 11,000 years ago, and the potential for future eruptive and debris flow events remains high. Although basement rocks are poorly exposed on and around the mountain, scattered outcrops suggest it stands atop serpentinite and associated rocks of the Eastern Klamath terrane. This course will…
