Scientists are examining a new emission of carbon dioxide, indicating possible underground volcanic activity, in the Eastern Sierra about 10 miles from gas emissions noticed in recent years on Mammoth Mountain. The U.S. Geological Survey said this week that it will install sensors about seven miles northeast of the town of Mammoth Lakes in an effort to measure and monitor the freshly reported emissions.

A team of eight U.S. Geological Survey volcano experts has completed a weeklong training exercise at Mammoth Lakes to check on emergency procedures in case of a volcanic eruption in the vicinity. But the team leader said the exercise did not mean the scientists expect an eruption soon. "It was an exercise to test our response should something happen," said David Hill of the Geological Survey's regional headquarters in Menlo Park, Calif.

It was a snowy day, what Fred Richter calls "a full Gore-Tex and goggle day," when the U.S. Forest Service ranger stumbled across the latest geological development in this historically volcanic area. While visiting a snow survey cabin beside Horseshoe Lake, below the Mammoth Mountain Ski Area and two miles west of town, Richter suddenly found himself unable to breathe and had to scramble outside for air.
