Dr. Dave Shormann is an educator, author and scientist. He has a bachelor’s degree in Aerospace Engineering, a Masters in Marine Chemistry and his Doctorate in Limnology (the scientific study of bodies of fresh water such as lakes and ponds with reference to their physical, geographical, biological and other features). He has served the home school community by teaching college preparatory math and science classes from a biblical foundation and has developed the DIVE into Math CD’s which have been instrumental in schooling children about the world. He is a Creation scientist and leader of several expeditions to Novarupta.

June 6-8th marks the 100th anniversary of the 1912 eruption of Novarupta. Novarupta (Latin for “new eruption”) is a volcano that is part of Katmai National Park in Alaska.

The eruption of Novarupta was about 30 times greater than that of Mount St. Helens as it dumped over 700 feet of volcanic material in 60 hours. It was so powerful that on June 7th, 1912, it shook the town of Illiamna, Alaska, continuously for 12 straight hours. That’s pretty impressive when you consider the fact that Illiamna is 100 miles away from the volcano.

Perhaps even more astounding is the fact that people about 750 miles away, in Juneau, Alaska, actually heard the blast one hour after it occurred!

Obviously with a blast of this magnitude, the effects were felt even beyond Alaska. Dr. Shormann noted that it dropped the temperature in the Northern Hemisphere by 2 degrees and six days after it erupted the volcanic ash was visible in Algeria in Northern Africa.
Join Dr. Shormann as he discusses many other fascinating historical facts about Novarupta, what the area might unveil in terms of the history of the entire earth, how this history affects the Creation science community and more.
