” Like the plume of a steamer, the plume drifts from the Baja California to the north-northeast to the Yellowstone volcano.

But for the risk assessment of the Yellowstone volcano this has no effect. “”

We don’t know what this study means, but we checked around as today we have about 10x normal traffic on this blog and no one got butted by a bison.
