Could the earthquakes in SALMON, Idaho be an alarm for yellowstone?

Hi-

First I'm no earthquake specialist so I'm asking the other more knowledgeable earthquake people on here to help me out. I read this article today


SALMON, Idaho (Reuters) - Hundreds of low-level and medium-sized earthquakes have struck central Idaho since last month, puzzling geologists who wonder whether the ruptures portend a much larger temblor to come or are merely the rumblings of a seismic fault previously thought to be dormant.


news.yahoo.com...

They also added that this type of swarm usually is due to molten rock moving below.


Such earthquake swarms typically are associated with the movement of molten rock below ground, which geologists credited for the recent quake cluster at Yellowstone National Park, or they are linked to an active fault, he said on Tuesday.


I then decided to look at a map and noticed that Salmon, Idaho and Yellowstone are both directly horizontal to each other which got me wondering. What if its just lava flowing to Yellowstone. Couple weeks ago Yellowstone had its movement and now Idaho is moving as well. Not to mention Cali has been getting hit with earthquakes as well. What if all of the recent earthquakes from Idaho and Cali is just molten lava moving towards Yellowstone.



Anyhow thoughts? Could all this activity be lava moving towards Yellowstone for a larger event?

Yes. Since they've twice now revised the estimated size of the magma chamber under Yellowstone, little did they realize that it actually extends beyond the confines of the earth and solar system, and stretches all the way into oblivion. Therefore, we're all gonna die.

Hi TrueAmerican-

I'm not saying the world is going to end


However since you are one of the earthquake guys on here do you think that it could be lava moving towards Yellowstone? It almost seems like Yellowstone had its little movement kinda like our stomach making room for more food only its food is lava.

When magma breaks rock, it does so in such a way that differentiates itself from tectonic or faulting based quakes. The problem is this is not determined in an instant, and hence the reason for them moving a portable seismic network into the area- to better assess these things. It will probably be a while before there is any determination. But to give you an idea, it took Yellowstone scientists nearly five years to determine that the quake swarm at the lake in 2008 was likely caused by a magmatic intrusion.

Given though that the magma chamber under Yellowstone comes nowhere near 300 km away from the park, where these quakes are occurring in Idaho, I'd sooner believe your dog is an alien, than believe these quakes have anything at all to do with Yellowstone. It's probably just a previously unknown fault acting up, or a new fault extension from the previously known faults that caused seismicity in the past there.

It's possible that it could be resurgent volcanic activity from the ancient, extinct Challis volcanic field, but the chances of that aren't near as good as me winning the Megamillions lottery. So to answer your question in one word: no.

Thank you for the info.

There was a 6.9 earthquake in Challis, ID in 1983, so apparently there is a history of large earthquakes in this area. It would be interesting to know if there were foreshocks to that quake similar to what is happening in Challis right now.

I can ask to my mom later if this means anything, she's a geologist.
I will contact yours later

I am no geologist or seismologist but near as I can tell this "pattern" started in mid September 2013 and has continued since.

Either the seismograph is broken or something really weird is going on there. Considering it is continuous and predictable could it be the extinct Soda Butte geyser is no longer Extinct? I would really like to know what causes that daily pattern and it did not exist.

Seems almost like machinery is the cause...methodical like clockwork...

Could fracking cause events of this scale?

well actuall Bob,, i like this explanation the best so far.

Kind of like Deep Space Radio X-Ray burst of Photonic Electrons.
