Geology and Hazards of the Pacific Northwest

Mount St Helens Seattle Fault Columbia River Basalts

 

The Pacific Northwest is defined broadly here to include, from north to south, British Columbia, Washington state, Oregon, Idaho and Northern California as far south as the San Francisco Bay area (see map, which shows the US part of the Pacific NW). The links below have been compiled to provide support for the University of Derby's field courses to the Pacific Northwest.
