Thumbnail MSH06_MOVIE_spine_from_brutus_08-02_to_08-10-06.avi
"Movie" made from pictures taken from the Brutus camera (located on the east rim of the 1980 Mount St. Helens crater) on August 2-10, 2006. The sequence shows the continued extrusion of spine 7 of the growing lava dome. However, between August 4-5 and August 7-8 a segment of the middle part of spine 7 (located inside the yellow circle in the .avi movie) temporarily stopped moving. After the August 5 picture was taken (at 13:10 PDT) a magnitude 3.6 earthquake occurred (at 13:15 PDT). The next photo (taken on August 6 at 13:10 PDT) shows that the “stuck” segment became unstuck at some time after the magnitude 3.6 earthquake. Motion again stopped in the circled area between photos taken at 13:10 PDT on August 7 and August 8, and subsequently a magnitude 3.3 earthquake occurred at 8:01pm on August 8. Clouds obscured the volcano from view on August 9, however clouds parted enough on August 10 to show that once again the segment became unstuck. One explanation for these observations is that the large earthquakes were caused by parts of the spine sticking and then slipping. Scientists use observations such as these to develop and test ideas about what is driving the eruption and to anticipate changes in the volcano’s behavior.

One explanation for these observations is that the large earthquakes were caused by parts of the spine sticking and then slipping. Scientists use observations such as these to develop and test ideas about what is driving the eruption and to anticipate changes in the volcano’s behavior.
