TA...is it an uplift area there?...( the cracking rock )....

I will tentatively say no, I don't think it is... The uplift is occurring over to the east of there at Norris. However, this is a constantly changing system, and uplift is determined by GPS and tiltmeters. It takes a while. After every swarm, and in between swarms, they constantly monitor and check for changes in ground height. Who knows, they could find something new after this one.

well at least there are 4 swarms at the same time .......long time no see.....
and an 4.4 also long time ago...
something is stirring...
note :
Island bardarbunga also in swarm state now... a reply to: TrueAmerican

I've followed your updates for years and as always I love the fact it's all scientifically backed with zero doom porn. Hopefully we never see Yellowstone going up it would be the end of civilisation as we know it

Not necessarily. Yellowstone doesn't have to go big. It has had small eruptions in the not so distant past. It could decide to have a small eruption and give the entire country brown underwear just for fun.

Troubling, in my book! Been thinking for some time now that area would see some serious activity. Don't think I'd want to be hanging around there, with this happening.

yowza. We were just in West Yellowstone on Tuesday (in the SNOW) and Wednesday and the Ranger at Old Faithful said there had been a large uptick in small quakes and that he had felt one that morning.

Glad I missed it - probably would have figured it was the big one

I'm not concerned. For now I've got absolutely no skid marks in my knickers! heheheeee

I don't think we need to get excited till we see something in the upper 6's.

My feeling is the Magnetic Poles shifting is causing magma to move too.

I'm not concerned at the moment either, but consider, if they start saying it's gonna pop tomorrow?

You know there will be some stains out there.
And it won't all just be loonies convinced the world will end either because any eruption at a system like this is cause for concern. And even if you know it's almost certainly going to stay small ... there's always that chance.

I think this current area is just barely east of 1959 Severe Earthquake in this area.
Current earthquakes:


1959 Earthquake:
“The epicenter, the point directly above where the quake occurred, was located near Duck Creek and the junction of Highways 287 and 191, eight miles north of West Yellowstone, Montana. But the quake was powerful enough to be felt in eight states, across 500,000 square miles.”

Hopefully, if there will be an eruption it won't be nearly as bad as the one shown in "2012."

I know that was a work of fiction, but sometimes I wonder how catastrophic a Yellowstone eruption could be. "2012" made it look like if it blows it will be an ELE.

Here are several videos by "Dahboo77" at Youtube. The first two videos were done yesterday, the other came out two hours ago:









Re. the Nasa "Sofia" jet, I did some research and confirmed the Flight registration # is N747NA. If you go to flightradar24.com and enter that number in the search field, you will find a list of most recent flights.

When I clicked on the plane icon to the far right (this was for the two most recent flights), an unusual message popped up that read "please note that part of this flight track is out of our coverage." Not sure if that is significant or not.

Anyway, here is a screenshot of the most recent flights for Sofia:

Keep in mind that this is a movie based on science, so I can't vouch for how accurate it will be.

I would say that depending on how big the boom ended up being, the US, at the very least, would find it difficult to operate as a nation and there would be global impacts for a period of some years afterward from the atmospheric effects.

I saw that movie about a year ago. It was pretty good.

It would be catastrophic.

Ground water contaminated.

Corn belt and other ag destroyed.

The jetstream pushing it all across the globe.

The markets would crash.

Millions would get unemployed overnite.

What's left would not be able to sustain social programs

That is for those that survive the 'nuclear' winter.

Worse case scenario.

Adios compadres.

Something FEMA should be preparing for, and the UN, and our neighbors to the north and South with the flood of refugees.

I am thinking it needs to happen and cool us into an ice age so the food doesn't grow like it would if we had co2 and warm temps! /s

We would have lots more CO2 but cold temps. It would be a chance to see if it makes it warm for real.

I would not want people to suffer for such an event.

Interesting on the yellowstone quakes!
Keeping an eye on those!

TA...is it an uplift area there?...( the cracking rock )....


Well, after a more careful review of the GPS station readouts around the Hebgen Lake area, I am going to retract my previous answer. Keep in mind that there is no GPS station in the immediate area of the main swarm, BUT...

The GPS stations around the Hebgen Lake area are all showing a slight trend upwards. In fact, other than a very recent renewal of uplift in the Norris area, it is the Hebgen Lake area that is showing any uplift at all.

So I will change my answer to yes, this swarm does appear to be in an area of very slight uplift. Now whether these quakes are connected to the uplift in this area is a matter for serious scientific study, and beyond what I can provide.

Latest update:
Quakes still continue, mostly below M3 level.

I will say this, though. In reviewing the sequence from the beginning of this swarm, with my suspicions of them potentially being rock break type quakes, I think I may have some evidence to back that up. What we may have here is a lateral magma injection, otherwise known as a sill. I say this because of the way the small quakes started, then reached a point and stopped for many hours. And then wham, the 4.4 hit, and a whole new cascade of quakes ensued and still continues.

This could be indicative of a lateral magma movement, which started, reached a blockage, stopped, then built up pressure, and bang, broke through the blockage with the 4.4. And is potentially still moving laterally, creating more quakes. I think it is lateral mostly, and slightly upwards maybe. This would be because the depths of the quakes are only getting slightly more shallow, and not showing a definitive trend upwards. that's about the best I've got on this so far, and it is only my opinion from what I have seen. I may well be totally wrong. But still, we need to keep an eye on the average depth of these quakes as they continue.
