Now particularly curious, is that these recent events have been occurring close to station MCID, which has been exhibiting some interesting signatures lately.

From my observation of your threads can it be said that Yellowstone would be a reactive Volcano in a sense. I find that after we have a large shake somewhere in the world there seems to be a shallow uptick in the amount of seismic activity around YellowStone and the surrounding area.
In your opinion does the release of pressure across the globe enhance the probability of an eruption there or does it lesson it because as I said it seems like this Volcano gets a msg across the globe wakes up blows off some steam then goes back to being silent until something across the globe make it feel a need to present itself.
Just a brief observation

Volcanoes that "blow their top" are the dangerous ones. The lava flow and ash can be dealt with typically, but when the top blows off THAT causes some nasty effects.
So for super dangerous super volcanoes like this one, that we know will erupt at SOME point, would it not be a good idea to get a few backhoes out there to dig the "cap" off of it? The logic here is: if there's no cap on it, there will be no cap to blow off.
I'm sure this line of thinking has some flaws. Not to mention that no one will want a backhoe anywhere near this National Park. And also the fact that it would take 100 backhoes a number of years working around the clock to fully excavate this massive momma.
Maybe some pressure-relief wells can be bored out? I dunno, thinking out loud...edit on 16-4-2013 by Heliophant because: (no reason given)
