This will be the 360th meeting since 1954.
Visit the web site for the project on Resources and Hazards of Hydrothermal Systems in Cascades Volcanoes.
I have a BS degree in earth sciences from the University of California at Santa Cruz, and MS and PhD degrees in geology from Stanford University. My MS thesis was a metamorphic petrology study of the Gabilan Range near San Juan Bautista completed under Louie (Dr. Liou). My PhD dissertation was a study of hydrothermal systems related to middle Tertiary plutons in the central Wasatch Mountains, Utah, under Marco Einaudi. I have been a research geologist in the Mineral Resources Team of the U.S. Geological Survey since 1979. Most of my work has involved study of Mesozoic and Tertiary igneous rocks and associated mineral deposits in the Great Basin. In the past couple of years, I have headed a project studying hydrothermal alteration and mineral deposits in the Cascades arc from Washington to northern California. A part of this project involves study of hydrothermal alteration on active stratovolcanoes in the Cascades to help better evaluate potential hazards from these volcanoes.
