Oregon's Volcanic Badlands

OPB | Feb. 1, 1990 7:30 p.m.

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
