About The Geologic History and Hazards of Mount Rainier

The Geologic History and Hazards of Mount Rainier

Presented by Patrick Pringle, Professor Emeritus of Earth Sciences at Centralia College

Research of the past few decades has revealed rich details about Mount Rainier's eruptive and environmental history. Join us to learn what we can expect from Mount Rainier in the future.

About the Speaker:

Pat Pringle is Professor Emeritus of Earth Sciences at Centralia College, Washington. He taught at Centralia College from 2005–2017 and was a Research Geologist at DNR Geological Survey of Washington from 1990–2005 and at US Geological Survey Cascades Volcano Observatory from 1982–1990. Pat studies volcanoes, earthquakes, landslides, and debris flows using radiocarbon and tree-ring analysis to establish the history of past geologic events. He is the author of books on the roadside geology of Mounts St. Helens and Rainier as well as many published papers and reports; the Mount Rainier book won the Geoscience Information Society’s “Best Guidebook Award” for 2009, presented at the Geological Society of America’s Annual Meeting that year.

About Olympic Club History Pub

Olympic Club History Pub

These monthly, free events are open to everyone interested in Oregon and Pacific Northwest history. Co-sponsored by like-minded historical and civic organizations, we bring you experts, scholars, first-person experiencers and historians who expound on topics from Lewis and Clark to shipwrecks, hop growing to women pioneers and far, far beyond. It's like being back in the classroom - except this time you get to settle into comfortable seats and enjoy a drink or two with dinner while you listen and learn.
