Introduction

The Three Sisters area is a potentially active volcanic center located in the High Cascades in Central Oregon.  This center is comprised of North Sister, Middle Sister, South Sister, Broken Top, and Mount Bachelor.  Due to resorts and growing communities, the monitoring and study of this area has become one of great importance (United States Geologic Survey [USGS], 2002d).
