    During the 9 hours of vigorous eruptive activity on , about million tons of ash from Mount St. Helens fell over an area of more t square miles (57, square kilometers). The total volume of the ash before its compaction by rainfall was about cubic mile ( cubic kilometers), equivalent to an area the size of a football field piled about "The Aftermath of Mount St. Helens" NBC Today Show, New York, NY: NBC Universal, 05/20/ JACK PERKINS, co-host: Clouds of fallout from the Mt.

Outstanding book pointing to the Mount St. Helens explosion and how rock layers formed very quickly during the volcanic eruption. Sound evidence for how rock layers can form quickly (within days) and don't take millions of years!/5(26).

The eruptive column at Mount St. Helens fluctuated in height through the day, but the eruption subsided by late afternoon. By early the eruption had stopped. By that time, the ash cloud had spread to the central United States.

Two days later, even though the ash cloud had become more diffuse, fine ash was detected by systems used to monitor air pollution in several cities. Of the above parameters, the first five parameter and also ash effect that can be commonly observed after the St. Helens eruption is considered.
