I am sorry but can you guys please talk in layman's terms?

My question for you is if YS does have an event, does it have to be life destroying or can it just let off a bit and trow some ash up and such?

If an EQ a serious EQ happens in Yellowstone does that spell imminent doom?

I will patiently await your answer because for a few years now little on this site deeply disturbs me as Ys, my little granddaughter lives in Shasta.

Jesus Christ, I hope this isn't another Yellowstone mega-thread.

Of course we'll have to keep an eye on it, as it IS yellowstone, but lets PLEASE not hash out another one like the last time. That thing kept me up at night for weeks. Literally.

Of course, that is all me... But still.

We have seen that Yellowstone can experience swarms... and does.

I would like to say that I'll wait for a substantial quake in this region this go around, but I probably won't.

Hi Antar, I covered this in my earlier post. There is speculation that Yellowstone actually blows out, and not up. The evidence supporting this theory comes from the large basalt lava flows which are spread all over the Northwest. At the very least it is an interesting theory, and it would mean a much "nicer" eruption should Yellowstone go off.

If the other theory that it blows up should occur, then kiss Your arse good bye


Either way because of the gas trapped in the magma of the caldera there will never be a half arsed explosion, but a full fledged explosion; either up, or out.

Actually I beleive statistically speaking,
a hydrothermal event is much more likely
and happens more frequently than a major eruption.

As for damage, its anyones guess.
As for one who relies on irrigation water from that region,
any large event would not be good at all!

I will go dig up the info on the hydrotherms and be right back.
Well I found this right off:


Yellowstone National Park geologist Hank Heasler was lecturing a group of colleagues in Biscuit Basin on the rarity of hydrothermal explosions last week when – Boom!

www.jhnewsandguide.com...
Ya, here it is:


Much larger hydrothermal explosions have occurred at Yellowstone in the recent geologic past. More than a dozen large hydrothermal-explosion craters formed between about 14,000 and 3,000 years ago, triggered by sudden changes in pressure of the hydrothermal system. Most of these craters are within the Yellowstone Caldera or along a north-south-trending zone between Norris and Mammoth Hot Springs.

I wonder what Mt. St. Helens is up to these days? I haven't heard anything
about it lately. Anybody up on that?

Someone relayed some info during the last yellowstone thread that there was a MOUNTAIN found about 100 miles east of yellowstone that was believed to once be a part OF yellowstone.

It was blown 100 miles through the air and landed upside down.
Apparently this is how the geologists were able to link the two. Strata matched both sites, but inversed...

Pop tops and lands upside down. (top pops, rather)

That isn't good.

Talk about a fiery temper! lol!

Seriously, though, that's pretty cool. Can you send a link to a picture? I'd love to see an upside down mountain!

Phew, thanks, I needed some humor right about now. I surely hope not. Take it easy for the moment on the flags for this thread please people- I don't want to alarm anyone unnecessarily.

She's quieted down now for the moment. Hopefully, it was a one-time thingy false alarm thingy. It is an active area. So it is to be expected, and as Oz said, probably nothing to worry about- yet. I'll let yas know when to start flaggin! Hopefully never!

I agree Jay!

However, from another perspective, that thread has some serious info!
It was nice to speculate and throw our thoughts back and forth.
It taught me alot and I would have to applaud the thread and all the participants at the very least!

I spent many sleepless nights here myself but I spent it with friends!
And I mean that! You know who you are, after all your on my friends list!

It is nice to have a place to go where you can actually talk about things that are out there a little!
Things that most others just roll their glazed eyes over.

Aww darn, another one just hit, this one 300+ microns BHN and 166 on the BHZ channel. Those are still small, like 1.5 mag to 2.5 mag tops. But to me it is the issue of these occurring so close together in time. I believe we are already at mini swarm status here.

Well said, well said.

I hate it when people slam those of us with over-imaginations and say that we're over-reacting. (Not saying that JayinAr did that, but many others do.) This website is basically here for people to have a place to discuss the extreme possibilities of any given situation, isn't it?

Anyone can sit at home on the couch and go "Ho-hum, nothing new today. What's on TV?"

No, I couldn't possibly send a link with a picture.
Just some random info I picked up in that other thread... what was it, half a year ago?

It stuck out to me because it seemed amazing.

Thanks for the comic relief!
I would have to say besides nerdy,
we are aware, awake and on guard!

Peace to the volcano gods btw!

(is this where we have to find a sacrificial virgin?)


Well I tried cracking a joke! (it's late)

Still not a thing showing up at USGS... quite odd indeed since events are being recorded at multiple stations in GEE with some energy.
