The eruption of Mt. St. Helens has provided a veritable ‘living laboratory’ for geologists. Dramatic and unexpected catastrophic processes altered the geological features around the mountain. Examining these events following the eruption, this video shows how these can serve as a guide to explain other geologic events that we see around the world today. Some topics discussed in the video include rapid strata formation, rapid erosion, log deposition and burial in sediment, peat and coal formation, and the rapid biological recovery following the eruption. This video is a valuable tool to anyone that seeks a better understanding of geology from a young-earth creationist perspective.
