What this means for real-time monitoring at this stage of the project, says Lawrence, is that the satellite data can tell Park managers when big changes occur in a geothermal area, but not necessarily what is happening, or exactly where. Landsat thermal pixels used in this study are 120 meters on a side, much bigger than many of Yellowstone’s geothermal landmarks, many of which can be as small or smaller than a one meter.

My mom just told me that a guy she works with told her that his friend, who's a seismologist, called him needing him to take care of his dog because he had to go out to Yellowstone right away, but couldn't tell him why.
Anyone heard of any similar stories?
This may be nothing, but I figured I'd better post it in the event that it is significant.
I'll let everyone know if I hear anything more.
