Each month, talk with real scientists in an informal setting about new topics focusing on current research. Presented by Pacific Science Center and KCTS 9. Dr. Jim Gawel will talk about the grand adventure of studying Spirit Lake. The 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens dramatically changed Spirit Lake, filling the old lake basin with landslide debris and floating logs. People often ask if the lake has “recovered,” but this is a brand new lake now, and the volcano has changed the ecology of Spirit Lake and the surrounding land and created a complex ecosystem that researchers from UW Tacoma have been working for 10 years to understand.
