Hi all you ATS' ers 705 wow , that magma pool has been there for along time in the middle of no where and it was meant to be there to vent pressure and heat gases, if you are about 900 miles from it or better yet 900 west of it , I'd sleep tite in my basement. People 900 miles east need respirators and or gas masks maybe for a few days. If it vents . Large area many staggered vents would be my guess!! Hopefully

I know what's happening in Yellowstone. Whole of Yellowstone is a supervolcano. According to seismologists and researchers Yellowstone should have erupted/exploded again. In this case we get no sunlight for years. The eruption would be 1000 times bigger than Krakatoa.
But I don't know exactly what will happen, or about yellowstone park. It's pretty good explained in Bill Bryson's A history of nearly everything. I suggest reading that book. You could do something else too.

Must see in full screen to appreciate....Just recorded this today from the live cam. It looked so eerie, and I just thought it was something you Yellowstone people would like to see. Nothing unusual going on.....just a spooky looking shot

It was doing that off and on all day. I think it was wind moving the camera. It freaked me out too
They had 14 mile per hour winds and snow yesterday. It was the first time I looked at that camera, so it may be common. But that was what I meant by "looking eerie.....just the view and the movement makes you picture what it might look like if it ever acts up.

ETA I just checked the winds at Yellowstone, and right now they are 22 mph, but the cam is not moving. It's probably normal though, I'll see if it does it again today. I'm sure someone here watches the cam regularly and would know if it normally moves.

Hey's another one from this morning. It HAS to be wind
It was not moving at all, then started doing this for a minute or two, then stopped.

I hate to be an alarmist, but according to specialist websites Yellowstone is dangerously close to popping her cork. What doesn't help matters is that the Bush administration authorized over 15,000 oil and gas fracking wells all around the perimeter of the park. A bit like allowing people searching for gold to use jackhammers to drill into a chamber stacked with gelignite. BillWill

I agree one billion percent about fracking around Yellowstone, it's nuts. But Yellowstone isn't going to erupt soon. I mean that I can see. It's quiet with only a few quakes here and there. And it's not inflating as it was before the big swarms. I kinda like it this way for the moment. Because it's 2012. This means everyone and the brother's uncle will be looking for any out of the ordinary to point to and say it's close. I think Yellowstone is a danger. And agree no one knows when it will blow. But it ain't looking like anything at the moment and that's good. Next year, after we get passed dec 21, it can shake all it wants and it won't cause and needless worry.

But I doubt it. Something will happen. Something unique. Something because life is a coincidence. And people will talk. I just know it...

Oh my good gosh golly gee. That freakin' camera makes me sea sick. I love watching the geysers but only for a moment and if the wind is calm. There is another webcam I think.

Yeah.....they don't have very good cams. There were 14 mph winds that day, so it was swaying.

Just dug this up on the web:
"Researchers report the super-volcano underneath the state of Wyoming has been rising at a record rate since 2004. Its floor has gone up three inches per year for the last three years indicating the fastest rate since records began in 1923"
Not very reassuring

Welcome to ATS BillWill and the Yellowstone Thread. Lots and Lots of information here!! The uplift at the park ended with the January 2010 Swarm and now is in a state of subsidence (Thank Goodness)!


Here is the latest monthly update

Friday, June 1, 2012 2:33 PM MDT (Friday, June 1, 2012 20:33 UTC)

44°25'48" N 110°40'12" W, Summit Elevation 9203 ft (2805 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: NORMAL
Current Aviation Color Code: GREEN

During the month of May 2012, the University of Utah reports 30 earthquakes were located in the Yellowstone National Park region. The largest was a magnitude 2.1 event on May 24 at 12:47 AM MDT, located about 22 miles southeast of West Thumb, YNP. No earthquake swarms were detected in May.

Yellowstone earthquake activity is at a relatively low background level.

Slow subsidence of the caldera, which began in early 2010, continues. Current deformation patterns at Yellowstone are well within historical norms.

Please see: for a map of GPS stations in the Yellowstone vicinity. For a graph of daily GPS positions at White Lake, within the Yellowstone caldera, please see:

Yellowstone seems to be heating up,. there are some reports that old geysers are opening up that were once dormant for many years.

I just came across this excellent recent video about Yellowstone, made by the Director of the YVO, Jake Lowenstern, and highly recommended watching if you are interested in YS. Made a thread about it here:

Did anybody else(undoubtedly) get anything more specific about a 3.7 in the NW region of Yellowstone-

Just the other day, there was a 3.5 mag sw of her. Today, there was a 2.8 in the region. There's even been some activity around long valley this summer. Prepare for the worst, hope for the best. It's time to stock some fresh instant milk, anyway.

I know there's a drought, but didn't the water table drop quickly?

I just caught a blurb on FB about some streams and rivers in YS being closed to fishing due to 70 degree pluss water temperatures. Has anyone seen a link to such news? I'm going to poke about on the net a bit to see what I can find, but well, it seems a bit out of norms.


Published: Monday, Jul. 30, 2012 - 3:26 pm
YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. -- Parts of three rivers in Yellowstone National Park will be closed to fishing due to unusually warm water temperatures.

Starting Wednesday, park officials will prohibit fishing on the Gibbon River below Gibbon Falls, Firehole River below Keppler Cascades, and the Madison River.

The reason is water temperatures ranging into the high 70s - too warm for trout. Warm weather, hot water from thermal features and low stream flows all are causing the water to warm up.

Warm water can be stressful or even fatal for trout.

Yellowstone officials say the forecast calls for more warm weather and that could cause additional areas to be closed to fishing.
