Default Science Nation - Mount St. Helens: Rising From the Ashes


I thought this was a neat video. It also gives me ideas of what to do with the fire place ash this year and how to establish some Lupinus perennis in the yard. I seriously planted a couple hundred seeds of this plant a few years ago and as far as I can tell every seedling has failed. Perhaps a mound of fireplace ash will help solve this problem.

Maybe try an inoculum for L. perennis instead of ash. I think you'll get better results faster, https://www.prairiemoon.com/other-products/inoculum/. Can't go wrong for $1.50. Nice video. I've been paying more attention to volcanoes lately. I bookmarked this site to keep up with what's going on and there's a lot going on, Global Volcanism Program | Volcanic Activity Reports | Smithsonian / USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report |. Supposedly there's a significant increase in volcanic activity as a result of a magnetic reversal, Troubling Global Volcanic Activity on the Rise. I remember making hydrogen peroxide volcanoes with the boys when they were little.... they've moved on to bigger and better things but I'm still interested in volcanoes.
