Hello! My Name is Adam Kent, I am a professor of geology in the College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences at Oregon State University. I have been researching the geology of Mount Hood since 2003, with a focus on understanding how this amazing volcano works.
For several years I have been wanting to put together a website that functions as a resource for everyone interested in Mount Hood. The goal is to provide a one stop clearinghouse where anyone – academic researchers, interested members of the public, etc. – can come to find information about Oregon’s highest mountain and most recent volcano.
I plan to keep building the site, so please let me know if you have suggestions, comments or questions about Mount Hood or other Cascade volcanoes.
