On Thursday May 17 at 7 pm at the Klamath County Museum, our chapter is co-sponsoring a natural history talk by hydrologist Steve Bachmann from the Shasta-Trinity National Forest. The topic is a large debris flow that occurred on the SE flank of Mount Shasta volcano near the town of McCloud, CA in 2014. The debris flow started around 1:45 pm and lasted for about 11 hours. It occurred during a warm spell at the end of an unusually long and hot summer, and initiated at the toe of the Konwakiton Glacier. Steve will be discussing the history of debris flows on the mountain, possible mechanisms, impacts, and the aftermath of the event.
This presentation is free and everyone is welcome to attend. A business meeting will follow the presentation. For more information, please contact the museum at 541-882-1000
