Is Yellowstone Supervolcano About to Erupt? Staggering Underground Activity At Yellowstone Lake – February 2 2014

A seismometer inside a borehole at Yellowstone National Park has begun reporting staggering underground activity near the southwest corner of Yellowstone Lake, possibly signaling the beginning of an eruption of the Super Volcano at the Yellowstone National Park.

Yellowstone National Park is home to many beauties, with it’s ancient landscape, geysers, and hot springs. It is also the site of one of the worlds most destructive forces: A supervolcano.

However, new reports are coming in the a borehole (B944) at Yellowstone Lake (where most activity is) has shown some pretty intense movements.

Turner Radio Network states:

The activity began around 12:00 Noon, Mountain Standard Time (MST) on February 1, and was detected by a seismometer in Borehole B944 then continued, non-stop, all day yesterday getting worse and worse as the hours wore on.  The activity is continuing right now at 6:06 EST AM as this news article is being produced.

Only time will tell on if these beast is ready to go, as it is technically “over do” for it’s next eruption. However, it could still be another million years before it does. This data could just a bark at the moon, however a large series of earthquakes occurred in and around the area. These links are below.

Yellowstone activity

On average, Yellowstone’s Caldera erupts about every 640,000 years. According to the analysis of earthquake data in 2013, the magma chamber is 80 km (50 mi) long and 20 km (12 mi) wide, and is shaped like 4,000 km3(960 cu mi) underground mass, of which 6–8% is filled with molten rock.

The upward movement of the Yellowstone caldera floor between 2004 and 2008 rose almost 3 inches (7.6 cm) each year and was more than three times greater than ever observed since such measurements began in 1923. By the end of 2010, geologists stated that the ground swelling has slowed down significantly.

  1. http://volcanoes.usgs.gov/activity/status.php (click on yellowstone):

    “A borehole seismometer called “B944″, located near the West Thumb region of the Park, has been malfunctioning in recent weeks with strong bursts of electronic noise contaminating its data. These noise bursts appear as wild excursions on the B944 webicorders that can appear alarming to the inexperienced eye.”

  2. That’s “its ancient landscape” and “overdue.” Hard to trust the facts if they aren’t presented competently.
