Description

The western United States has a diverse volcanic landscape where the forces of nature meet the surface in spectacular ways. The earth is an active planet. This fact becomes evident when the powers of volcanism and groundwater meet to form geysers and hot springs. Learn about volcanoes, volcanism and how they influence the formation of various hydrothermal features, with an emphasis on Yellowstone National Park. We will also focus on Arizona’s hot springs and the rich volcanic history of the northern part of the state, home to the impressive San Francisco volcanic field containing world-class volcanic features and some of the country’s most recent volcanic activity.
