Facts about the Lassen Peak

Lassen Peak is prevalent volcanic activity, lava domes, Pelean, Phreat omatic, and Lahers.
When Lassen peak erupts the base diameter of 2.5km that rise 880m. Lassen peak is very dangerous volcano in the Cascades Range. Also Lassen Peak cause lots of damaged to the people and to the other animals and volcanoes.

Where is the Lassen Peak located?

Lassen Peak is located in the California, U.S.A.( Latitude- 40.49N, Longitude- 121.51W, Altitude- 3,187 ), in the southern area of the range.

The Eruption of Lassen Peak

On May 22, 1915, an explosive eruption at Lassen Peak, the southernmost active volcano in the Cascade Range, devastated nearby areas and rained volcanic ash as far away as 200 miles to the east. This explosiar-vent accumulations of highly viscous lava. About 27,000 years ago, Lassen Peak formed over a short time, probably no more than a few years. Its 2,000-foot height and nearly 2-cubic kilometer volume make it one of the largest lava domes in the world. When it formed, Lassen on was the most powerful in a 1914-17 series of eruptions that were the last to occur in the Cascades before the 1980 eruption of Mt. St. Helens. Lassen Peak is the largest of a group of more than 30 volcanic domes erupted over the past 300,000 years in Lassen Volcanic National Park.
Lassen Peak is the largest of a group of more than 30 lava domes in the Lassen dome field. Such domes are
ne Peak looked much like the Chaos Crags domes do today covered with angular rock talus and with over steepened flanks. During the last ice age, 18,000 to 25,000 years ago, its shape was significantly modified by glacial erosion. A tiny reminder of one of these glaciers survives on Lassen's eastern flank. The depression on the northeastern flank of Lassen Peak is a glacial cirque, where ice accumulated to form a glacier 10 kilometers long

Materials that I need

1 )Baking Soda
2) Vinegar
3) Red Food coloring
4) Newspaper
5) Liquid Dish washing Detergent
6) A box
7) A bottle

9) Scissors
12) Tape
13) Paint or Clay( brown,white, red)
14) Rocks
15 Grass
16) Pumper
17) Paint Brush
18) Camera

Steps for the Making a Volcano

1) Take the bottle and glue the newspaper on the top of the bottle.
2) Use white paint or clay to show the ice on the Lassen Peak.
3) If I'm done these things then use the red paint to draw the lava with the paint brush.
4) After that, put the volcano model in to the box.
5) Now I put the Grass inside the box.and little bit of rocks on the grass.
6) And paint the blue to show the lake.
7) After finishing the volcano then I will start to put the ingredients.
8) First I Pour one cup of water into the bottle.
9) Place it in the middle of a box.
10) Add two tablespoons of baking soda.
11) Add two squirts of liquid dish washing detergent.
12) Add twelve drops of red food coloring.
13) Pour in one cup of white vinegar.
14) Then spread the salt outside of the Lassen Peak volcano's hole.
15) If I want to explode again I use a pumper to erupt again.
