San Francisco, Calif., -- Since an earthquake swarmed beneath the volcano in 1989, carbon dioxide has been seeping out of the ground in areas of Mammoth Mountain, Calif., killing trees and posing a health hazard in this resort area. Now, continuous carbon dioxide monitoring by a Penn State researcher shows that this gas flow is much more complicated than previous measurements indicated.
