A dense network of gullies developed in the 2008 eruption deposits, probably starting during the waning phase of the eruption. Many of these gullies have eroded down to, and past, the pre-eruption surface, exposing still-viable turf. See http://doi.org/10.14509/29718 for additional details. Photographs taken by C. Nye and R. Buchheit (USFWS).
