Magnetotelluric sensors around Mount St Helens reveal a column of conductive material extending downward from the volcano and then connecting to a much bigger zone of conductive material, which scientists believe is magma.
This larger zone extends to beneath Mount Rainier about 40 miles to the northeast, and to Mount Adams about 30 miles to the east.
“If the structure beneath the three volcanoes is indeed a vast bubble of partially molten rock,” said an article today in New Scientist, “it would be comparable in size to the biggest magma chambers ever discovered, such as the one below Yellowstone National Park.”
“These enormous eruptions can spew enough
into the atmosphere to cool the climate
by several degrees Celsius.”
