Summary

Glacier Peak is a 3,214 m (10,544 ft.) stratovolcano composed mainly of dacite. The volcano is located in the Glacier Peak Wilderness Area, in the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, about 100 km (65 mi) northeast of Seattle and 110 km (70 mi) south of the International Boundary with Canada. Since the continental ice sheets receded from the region approximately 15,000 years ago, Glacier Peak has erupted repeatedly during at least six episodes. Two of these eruptions were among the largest in the Cascades during this time period. This DEM (digital elevation model) of Glacier Peak is the product of high-precision airborne lidar (Light Detection and Ranging) surveys performed during August-November, 2014 and June, 2015 by Quantum Spatial [...]

Purpose

These data, a raster digital elevation model (DEM) derived from an airborne lidar (Light Detection and Ranging) survey of Glacier Peak and the adjacent vicinity, contribute to natural hazards monitoring efforts, the study of regional geology and volcanic landforms, and landscape modification during and after future volcanic eruptions.
