Im not sure if the link to Nasas recent story about the geothermal stuff going on in and around YS has been provided yet. please forgive me if it
has .. because im posting it ..
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.
Iv read both stories on this subject and here is what i think is going on ..
as you all know iv been following this thread since the beginning of the xmas 08 quake swarm... and sometimes i do my own research and googleing on
no i am not a pro at this .. with that being said ..
it is highly possible that the magma chamber under YS is in fact growing in width and length .
and is now in fact larger then it was say when the last major eruption happened 640k years ago .
so when she next blows massivly she will be larger in scale to Lake toba .. yes its a scary thought , but due to what iv followed over the past two
years it is also possible ...
