Mount Shasta, Mount McLoughlin, Crater Lake, Mount Thielsen... you don't have to look far around the region to find volcanoes. But those are the stratovolcanoes, the obvious (and tall) signs of volcanic activity.

Leif Karlstrom at the University of Oregon points out that the well-known stratovolcanoes represent ONE percent of the recent (geologically recent, that is) volcanic activity in the Cascades.

We visit with professor Karlstrom in this month's edition of Curious: Research Meets Radio, our partnership with UO. He has stories to tell about the volcanoes, the sounds they make, and how he's even made music with those sounds.
