I've posted here a number of times about Yellowstone earthquakes.......... I've lived here for over 30 years (due south by the Tetons, under 100 miles from Old Faithful) and every now and then there are posts about the quakes...... They Happens Every Single Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! some a bit bigger, some smaller, some swarms.... but seriously folks....... It's YELLOWSTONE! A giant geothermally active area that has earthquakes by the minute, day in and day out. It's one thing to look at a recent graph, but it's another to compare it over years and years.... and we do get that data here in Jackson. We have seismographs all over the area here in the Greater Yellowstone area. It's No Big Deal, it's really just Business As Usual for this area. Locally? No news on strange events or unusual earthquakes. Just Another Day in earthquake country in Northwest Wyoming, where we measure travel by the hours, not the miles, and tiny earthquakes by the hundreds.

Well what great timing. The microswarm appears to have fizzled out, as expected- but the haters still gonna hate. So it's a perfect time for me to vacate this thread- unless more start occurring again... But activity has pretty much ceased for the last hours, except for a few minute fidgets.
I dunno know why people have to have something negative to say, especially when it contributes nothing to the topic. Nada. Zilcho. Hey, I reported the story from a non-hyped perspective and I brought professional opinion into the thread with the foremost authority on the volcano, the YVO Scientist In Charge. I am happy with my part on reporting this story. But maybe I should have done more. Maybe if it erupts and I finally just jump down into the thing and explode, they'll all be happy!

Well, when we get people that live by Yellowstone posting regular updates like trueamerican does, then we can be sure that we are getting information straight from the area. But that has not happened.
You can't fault true American for doing what he does best, and what few here do...monitoring the situation and contributing on ATS to keep us up to date.
I look forward to your scientific posts about the matter in the future. But won't count on it.

(Oh, and yes, there are vulcanologists that monitor the area 24x7).
Rocks can break at any depth. If you look at CA earthquakes today, you'll see lots that are less than 10 km and some
