The USGS Volcano Center has a series of short clips regarding their research. The clip below is about gathering information via GIS layers regarding impacts to infrastructure and development from volcanic hazards. I would note that in the still image before you click play, Angie Diefenbach is checking out hazard impacts from Mount Baker and possibly Glacier Peak as western Whatcom County and western Skagit County are on the screen. It will be interesting to see how the hazard maps and impacts effect planning. Delivering bad news can get bumpy sometimes.
