That camera must be mounted to a tree. I was getting seasick watching it slowly bob up and down. It reminded me of being on a boat watching shore on a wavy day.

It's been said that this super volcano can whipe out this continent completely. . In what context can we presume this event, if this thing goes ? And could it affect other super volcanos around the world?

The birds are singing, the grass is green and Yellowstone is gonna kill us all.
Another fine day in America


And as long as the birds are singing, things will be fine. Usually right before an eruption, there are mass wildlife die-offs, due to carbon monoxide poisoning. So until this happens, don't worry. But when it does, get the hell out of there, if you can, or make peace with your maker.

The western US has 2 super volcanoes, out of 7 worldwide (long valley and yellowstone). Then add to that all of those in Washington and all of the major fault systems in the Western US - it's definitely a hot spot for potential disaster. It's simply not known what can or will trigger it but I'm thinking experts will have a good idea before it happens. If we begin to see a quick uplift or harmonic tremors they will let us know. Then - not sure what people would do since there wouldn't be much one could do.

Well, I know whoever is in control of it can zoom around with it.
They have a few times since I started watching it.

Kind of a cool little live cam though!

It is cool Darkblade. It's like the live cams on the crippled reactors at Fukushima. IIRC, those are controlled remotely from a computer.

I like watching the live cams when there is a person interested in seeing something too, controlling the view. It gets boring when it always points in the same direction.

I'm starting to feel as if Mother Earth has finally had enough of our s***.
Well, back to the weather bunker! *tin foil hat mode = ON*

Mother Earth SHOULD have already had enough of our s#!t. Too bad Washington, DC wasn't built in Wyoming!


I for one welcome Mother Earth's cleansing, even it if means I have to be one that doesn't survive. I'm by no means a eugenicist, but human beings aren't as great as we think we are... the 1% perhaps being the worst.

I will wait for TA to chime in before speculating further, but lets not panic anyone. Yellowstone is a live volcano with tons of activity on a regular basis. There are faults that can create this size of quake. Yes, a 4.8 quake will definitely get your heart pumping, but bigger have happened before without a serious outcome.


Lol, well I did all my chiming in here, and then after spotted this thread, which is in the Other Current events forum, not Fragile Earth, where we'd usually see it:

That's the Upper Geyser Basin Webcam.

That was actually the right thing to do DTOM, move the first one to Fragile Earth, and close mine, so no beef here. Thanks for linking mine though, as there is more info in it than the OP here.

4.8?

Lol

I've seen bigger EQ's in "none seismic" parts of the world

It's fairly common In and around Yellowstone

4.8 is not common at YS.

AS i had stated in the original yellowstone thread..
the USGS said the last time the uplift and mag was of this concern was 1980
Also when Mt St Helens blew its top..

IIRC, there's a super volcano in NM, too. But I think it's been dormant sooooooooo long that folks consider it a REAL HAS BEEN.

I don't recall where it is.

These calderas and associated volcanic structures lie within the Jemez Volcanic Field. This volcanic field lies above the intersection of the Rio Grande Rift, which runs north-south through New Mexico, and the Jemez Lineament, which extends from southeastern Arizona northeast to western Oklahoma. The volcanic activity here is related to the tectonic movements of this intersection.

Is this assessment of the worst uplift since 1980 including the 2008-2010 swarm and uplift?

I was thinking about the focus too. Is it going out of focus because it is shaking? could it be the wind? or is the auto focus making it look as though it is shaking?

I read your other thread and it was quite informative. If it is magma though - wouldn't the signature look like a harmonic tremor? Or is it the case that it could be magma, having pushed hard enough to break rock, and not produce a HT?

And if magma broke through something - if this is their finding, what does that mean? It sounds really bad but I'm sure there are a couple of different things this could indicate so wanted your thoughts on it if possible.

I just watched this youtube on Yellowstone a couple days ago. Actually pretty interesting stuff on Yellowstone I might add. Worth the watch for those interested.

I can't help but think that people grossly over-estimate the power of even 'super' volcanoes. The Earth is a very big place.
