 19 May 1915 Eruption of Lassen Peak
We are extremely grateful of the National Park Service at Lassen Volcanic National Park, in particular to Chief Naturalist Richard Vance and Assistant Chief Naturalist Ellis Richard for their assistance in the conduct of this project, and to Diana Michna for her assistance in sample preparation.
For this work, a volcanic blast is defined as the effect of a violent eruption that causes significant destruction to the area surrounding the volcanic edifice, with an inferred significant radial component to the forces associated with the event.
The existence of a deposit with many of the characteristics of those formed by volcanic blasts, including charred organic material, and the planimetric distribution of the effects of the eruption are the strongest evidence for a volcanic blast on the night of 19 May. The cause of the blast is, however, problematic.
