Watching Yellowstone Again – Especially After California Shakes

We’ve been a little lazy about posting newer activity at Yellowstone.

It seems always to be grumbling and Mary Greeley watches it very carefully. But there’s this new seismic activity in California so let’s see how Yellowstone is doing.

The Express Fears of Yellowstone volcano erupting are on the rise after authorities have culled more than 1,000 bison living in the volatile park. The bison slaughter news comes after services have been told to prepare for life and death situations.

Supervolcano Eruption Fears

We have some scary geophysical news this week. This sums it up –

Yellowstone supervolcano is showing signs of STRAIN

The Daily Mail [UK] – Yellowstone supervolcano is showing signs of STRAIN: Experts measure subtle changes caused by magma deep beneath the surface

  • Scientists based in Colorado can measure the strain put on volcanoes in the US
  • They detected molten rock beneath the surface of Yellowstone National Park
  • Their discovery is not dangerous, and technologies allow them to track it closely
  • The researchers analyze the effects of slight environmental shifts on volcanoes

USGS – A recent “hiccup” in deformation of the Norris Geyser Basin

Not Yellowstone – but NW is shaking

This was sent in – it is of interest to Yellowstone quake watchers ….

I’m watching the Rattlesnake Ridge near Yakima, Washington right now.  Estimated 4-10 million cubic yards of hillside slipping at 1.6 feet/week.  There is highway below and the Yakima River.  A lady is giving daily updates with pictures.

Watch “Rattlesnake Ridge Update January 21, 2018.” on u tube….

What the heck is going on??

RSOE REPORT:

A recent swarm of more than 120 earthquakes near Mount St. Helens — all below a magnitude 0.5 comes as a reminder to scientists and residents alike that while the volcano has been relatively “well-behaved” recently, another eruption is inevitable. Our news partners at the Columbian recently got in touch with scientists who study, in part, the volcano and the land beneath it. To them, these quakes are a window into what’s going on underground, and can be helpful for directing further research. “Each of these little earthquakes is a clue and a reminder we are marching toward an eruption someday,” said Weston Thelen, a U.S. Geological Survey seismologist with the Cascades Volcano Observatory in Vancouver, as reported in the Columbian.
