Extreme natural hazards span the globe

I lived in Houston, but our town was dusted by a fine layer of Washington state, 3000 kilometers away after Mount St. Helens blew its top in 1980. But that was really not that remarkable, according to a global database of explosive eruptions presented in FM10’s session on U13B. Similar studies reported throughout the conference–on volcanoes, landslides and tsunami–also assembled global databases of extreme geological hazards to better know when and where such threats might loom.
