Southwest Flank of Mt.Rainier, WA

NCALM Seeds. PIs: Nicholas Legg, Oregon State University and Scott Anderson, University of Colorado, Boulder. The requested survey area consisted of two separate polygons within the boundary of Mount Rainier National Park in Washington on the southwestern flank of the volcano. Their close proximity enabled the two surveys to be flown most efficiently as a single polygon. The eastern polygon (Legg) covers the Kautz Creek watershed and was collected to investigate landscape response to debris flows in order to implicate hazards in Mt. Rainier National Park. The western polygon (Anderson) covers the Tahoma Creek watershed and was collected to assess climatically-driven aggradation in a mountain stream. The total area for the combined survey including the area between the requested polygons and the additional coverage in the northwest corner is approximately 123 square kilometers. The survey required 4 flights which took place from August 28, 2012 - September 1, 2012.
