Abstract The Pebble Creek Formation (previously known as the Bridge River Assemblage) comprises the eruptive products of a 2350 calendar year B.P. eruption of the Mount Meager volcanic complex and two rock avalanche deposits. Volcanic rocks of the Pebble Creek Formation are the youngest known volcanic rocks of this complex. They are dacitic in composition and contain phenocrysts of plagioclase, orthopyroxene, amphibole, biotite and minor oxides in a glassy groundmass. The eruption was episodic… 
Canadian Cascade volcanism: Subglacial to explosive eruptions along the Sea to Sky Corridor, British Columbia
Here we describe a two-day fi eld trip to examine Quaternary volcanism in the Canadian Cascade arc, named the Garibaldi volcanic belt. Day 1 of the trip proceeds along the Whistler corridor from
Comprehensive Volcanic-Hazard Map for Mount Meager Volcano , Southwestern British Columbia ( Part of NTS 092 J )
The Mount Meager Volcanic Complex, located in southwestern British Columbia (BC), has a 2 million year history of intermittent explosive volcanism (Read, 1990). It is currently in a state of
The July 29, 1998, debris flow and landslide dam at Capricorn Creek, Mount Meager Volcanic Complex, southern Coast Mountains, British Columbia
A very large debris flow was triggered during a period of record-breaking high temperatures in upper Capricorn Creek, within the Mount Meager Volcanic Complex, a part of the Garibaldi Volcanic Belt
Evidence for catastrophic volcanic debris flows in Pemberton Valley, British Columbia
The Mount Meager volcanic complex in southern British Columbia is snow and ice covered and has steep glaciated and unstable slopes of hydrothermally altered volcanic deposits. Three large-volume
The Vulnerability of Canada to Volcanic Hazards
Western Canada lies in a zone of active tectonics and volcanism, but thedispersed population has witnessed few eruptions due to the remoteness of the volcanoes and their low level ofactivity. This

Polymagmatic Glaciovolcanism: Cracked Mountain Tuya, Canadian Cascades
Monogenetic volcanoes are characterized as having no temporal break in eruptive activity and are often assumed to have a simple (singular) magmatic plumbing system. However, recent studies on
Volcano-Hydrologic Hazards from Volcanic Lakes
Volcanic regions typically host multiple lakes developed in explosion craters, volcano-tectonic collapse structures, and valley systems blocked as a result of eruptive activity, their boundaries and
A 36Cl age determination for Mystery Creek rock avalanche and its implications in the context of hazard assessment, British Columbia, Canada
The Sea to Sky Corridor has experienced hundreds of historic and prehistoric landslides. The most common types of historical landslides are rock falls and debris flows, which are relatively small in
