What do you think is happening to the water?† Do you think it is related to quakes or our dry winter?

Hi Flo.† Keep in mind California hasnít been getting the usual amount of rain.† We are in a drought condition here in San Benito County.† The map shows the location of quakes in and around the area of Cassel.† I used the ANSS with an 80Km radius with Cassel at the center. The search takes in all of Mt. Lassen and the southern part of Mt. Shasta. It starts in 1928.


When I was up there in 2004 I learned the water at the various springs and what have you was getting hotter. The cause isnít known. I also learned the NW side of the peak is getting hotter. I understand you canít really feel the heat, but sensitive instruments have been recording an increase in temperatures. No deformation is being seen.

A couple of years ago I was digging through USGS dustbins looking for quake activity before and during the eruption of Mt. Lassen. I found only one quake just to the east of Redding, Ca. Other than that there was nothing.

When I was there in 2004 the new visitorís facility hadnít been built. The parking lot was there, but that was it. My friend who used to work at Lassen Park looked around. He looked down the down slop from where the center was built said that he didnít think he would want to work there. I didnít ask why, but the road leading out of the area is not one you drive at any speed other than slow. It wouldn't take very long before ejected material caught up with you. Hopefully there will be a warning before it blows it top.

Snip:

:Initial RumblingsĒ
ďOn May 30, 1914, Lassen Peak awoke from its long repose when it was shaken by a steam-blast explosion. Volcanic steam-blasts do not erupt magma directly but, rather, are explosively expanding steam formed by the heating of shallow ground water. The steam rises under pressure through cracks and, upon reaching the surface, decompresses and vents explosively. Over the year from May 30, 1914 to May, 1915, more than 180 steam explosions were recorded, and many more went unrecorded. They blasted a crater in the summit area of Lassen Peak that gradually enlarged to about 1,000 ft across. On the evening of May 14, 1915, incandescent blocks of lava were seen bounding down the flanks of Lassen Peak from as far away as Manton, 30 kilometers to the west. The next day a black craggy mass could be seen poking over the crater rim. It was a growing dome of dacite lava that had welled up into the crater, filled it, and was spilling over the edge. That lava was the first indication of an important change in the character of the activity; from steam-driven to magma-driven. Remnants of this lava dome are preserved near the summit of Lassen Peak.Ē

With any kind of luck the next eruption will begin the same way. Take CareÖDon
