Photo: Volcanic Mudflow from Mt. Redoubt

Yale Environment 360 – The recent eruptions of Mount Redoubt in Alaska have resulted in a series of large lahars, or volcanic mudflows, streaming down the Drift River valley and into Cook Inlet.  Lahars are a dramatic, little-known, and often deadly consequence of volcanic eruptions … This photograph, taken April 4 by NASA’s Earth Observing-1 satellite, shows the ash-filled lahar carving wide channels into the snowy banks of the Drift River and nearly engulfing the Drift River Oil Terminal.
