Mt Adams Mount Adams is one of the largest volcanoes in the Cascade Range it is way bigger then any of the surrounding mountains Mount Adams has been less active during the past few thousand years than its neighboring mountains of St Helens Rainier and Mt Hood it will erupt again In the future the eruptions will probably happen more often from vents on the summit and upper sides of Mount Adams than from vents scattered in the volcanic fields beyond Large landslides and lahars that dont need to be related to eruptions probably will cause the most destructive far-reaching hazard of Mount Adams Volcanoes create a variety of geologic hazards during eruptions and when there isnt any eruptive activity During most of its history Mount Adams has shown a limited range of eruptive styles only being lava flows debris slides and tephra falls Very explosive eruptions have been rare Compared to the large explosive eruptions at nearby Mount St Helens during the past 20000 years the eruptions of Mount Adams have been very mild Eruptions at Mount St Helens have covered areas more than 120 miles downwind with ash deposits several centimeters or inches thick but those at Mount Adams have blanketed only areas a few miles away with a the same thickness of ash Even though theyre low levels of power and force eruptions at Mount Adams are still very hazardous More importantly even during times of no eruptive activity landslides of weakened rock that originate on the steep upper sides of Mount Adams have been a dangerous common thing and they can start lahars which are watery flows of volcanic rocks and mud that surge downstream like rapid flowing concrete Lahars also known as mudflows or debris flows and they can destroy and kill everything in the valley floors that they run down in to tens of miles from the volcano The most often occurring type of eruption that has happened
