Helens.December 12, 2016 Four swarms of small magnitude earthquakes were detected beneath Mount St. Helens beginning November 21, 2016. No anomalous gases or increases in ground inflation have been detected and there are no signs of an imminent eruption. During a week's time, there have been over 120 tiny earthquakes, most too small to be formally located by the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network. The current pattern of seismicity is similar to swarms most recently seen at Mount St. For more information, see the Activity Updates for Volcanoes in CVO Area of Responsibility and Earthquake Monitoring at Mount St.

At first I thought the notation to the lower left would be a clue, but I think it is a signature: AM Lang.

I haven't seen any other glass negatives from Anne Lang with a signature.

Mount Hood is a stratovolcano in northwest Oregon located about fifty miles east of Portland and thirty-five miles south of the Columbia River. At 11,244 feet, it is the highest point in Oregon and the fourth highest peak in the Cascade Range. Mount Hood has played a central role in the geology, history, natural environment, and culture that have helped shape northwest Oregon and the entire Pacific Northwest. Eruptions and Glaciers Composed primarily of andesite and dacite, Mount Hood began to form during volcanic eruptions between 500,000 and 700,000 years ago.

Over the ensuing millennia, further eruptions continued to shape and give rise to the mountain. Mount Hood Loop Interpretive Signs.
