Noticed that over the past few days May 26, 27, 28, 2011 that Yellowstone Cauldera has been getting more active again. Don't know if it's because of more visitor traffic, but there have been harmonic tremor signatures in seismographs from multiple locations within the cauldera. Not a lot, but enough to warrent observation.
Looks like a lot of earthquake activity around Long Valley continuing too. Both volcanoes are of concern to me knowing that FEMA just had their "Operation Solid Curtain" exercise this spring that involved all the local disaster agencies as well as government. I've noticed that the earthquake map for the US at USGS shows a line of quakes running from Long Valley to Yellowstone. Interesting.

I'd like to hear more from the people who are out in the area. I know that the seismograph stations in Norris Basin are no long recording, or they have been shut off.

Thoughts from you experts out there?

Harmonic tremors you say, care to provide some evidence? Starting a thread like this requires presentation of credible and undeniable proof. Try providing seismographs and tabulated data etc.

I'm no expert, but the ATS experts are about to rip this thread to pieces. Sorry.

maybe in another 50-100 need to go to water over this yet

I wouldn't place to much weight on the fact that an emergency response agency has a training session. That is kinda what they are supposed to be doing.

Care for evidence?
What evidence do you really need? Its long overdue to blow its top, and its been increasing its activity daily for the past years. The ground around it is also rising measureably, daily.

Not trying to monger the fear, but don't try and burry your head. The reason things like this will screw us over in the long run is because we cant just man up, face what is happening, and figure out the best way to handle it.
We just sit back and say ohh it can't be. No I don't want to think of such terrible things right now. The weather is normal. Everything is normal. Volcanos won't erupt while Im alive!

I'm far from ignorant of the world around me and the potential consequences of super-volcanic eruptions.

I'm also not gonna sit here and take in anyone's seemingly random claims.

I have looked at the available information on the internet and cannot see where these claims are substantiated.

So yeah, someone show me some evidence.

It's not really too much to ask.

If you dont live within 500 miles of it,why worry?..and if you do,why dont you move instead of fretting about it and getting all lathered up and bothering other people with it? cant stop move or...dont

You could the local expert on this since you seem to be following it anyway. Just report what you have noticed, say weekly, to keep the site informed. It would be OK to give your impression or gut feeling on the info.

Scan down page to Long Valley and check out latest activity. A lot for May...
Just thought I would share an interesting site...

posted on May, 28 2011 @ 12:23 PM

We have a fairly lenghty thread here with some hardened experts that keep a close eye on Yellowstone. If they haven't sounded the alarm yet then maybe you know something they don't.
Fairly sure the isn't any outbreak of harmonic tremors.

I also believe there is another thread for long valley too.

Thanks for the link Raven73.

Nothing outstanding really, if you look at the earthquake swarms earlier in the year (april). There was more activity then.

I agree..but still thought it was interesting and every now and then I go there to have a look so I thought I would share..
Oh and you are very welcome

a fresh and excellent thread. I glad that it hasn't been Highjacked by the "Be All and End all 2011 Yellowstoned" Council.SnF

It's Spring time, so they are plowing snow and repairing roads. That means heavy equipment, digging, etc.

It's man made activity those seismo's are picking up on.

Happens every Spring.

Thanks for the update. While there are other threads on the topics of Yellowstone and Long Valley, some are getting very long dating back a few years in some cases. Just thought since there is some increase activity (if you know what you are looking at on the seismographs) on the yellowstone observatory website and "isthisthingon" in the past few days especially the 26th, again, that I would bring it up on a new current date thread. Just thought some people might like to keep an eye on again for awhile, and the experts give their interpretations if they see something brewing. I didn't say it was going to blow, or go nuts.
Nice day to all
