Charles R. Bacon

Dr. Charles Bacon is a Research Geologist at the U.S. Geological Survey in the Volcano Hazards Team who has done a tremendous amount of work on Crater Lake National Park's geology.

He earned his BS in Geology at Stanford in 1970 and his Ph.D. in Geology from Univ. of California, Berkeley in 1975. His current research interests include Physical volcanology, petrology, geochemistry, and eruptive histories of calderas, emphasizing detailed study of Crater Lake, Oregon, and Veniaminof and Aniakchak calderas, Alaska Peninsula. General interest in volcanic and magmatic processes. Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry applied to geologic and biologic materials: http://shrimprg.stanford.edu/Personnel.htm
