Spirit Lake, 1981–2000
The lake underwent dramatic changes in the years after the eruption of Mt. Saint Helens in 1980
While research was conducted at Spirit Lake, Douglas Larson and other photographers documented the environment and scientists' efforts. Many of these photographs can be viewed in the article "Science after the Volcano Blew." Here we present a selection of additional images.
