Oregon's Volcanic Badlands


This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

We travel 5,000 feet under the Pacific Ocean for a look at research into volcanic activity past and present. The seismic forces that shaped Oregon’s coast are still alive miles offshore, where an underwater mountain range remains a volcanic hotspot.

First Broadcast: 1990
Producer: Jim Newman
