Ticking Time-Bomb': Yellowstone Super-Volcano Could Kill Millions

January 8, 2016

Magma Reservoir the Size of 11 Grand Canyons Discovered Under Yellowstone
 

 

"The US is in more immediate danger from “super-volcanos” like the one in the Yellowstone National Park, than other natural disasters -- as it may go off within the next 80 years, scientists say.

 
Experts from the European Science Foundation have determined that the likelihood of an eruption happening at one of the major volcanoes within 80 years is around 5-10%, due to a "volcano season" of increased activity.
 
"Although in the last few decades earthquakes have been the main cause of fatalities and damage, the main global risk is large volcanic eruptions that are less frequent but far more impactful than the largest earthquakes,” the report states.
 
“Due to their far-reaching effects on climate, food security, transportation, and supply chains, these events have the potential to trigger global disaster and catastrophe,” it continues. "The cost of response and the ability to respond to these events is beyond the financial and political capabilities of any individual country.”"

Ancient tectonic plate blocks magma plume at Yellowstone, simulation shows

February 3, 2016

SUPERVOLCANIC ORIGINS  A rising plume of hot rock from Earth’s mantle isn’t fueling the Yellowstone supervolcano and its natural wonders (Morning Glory hot spring, shown), new research suggests.  

 

 

"The supervolcano lurking under Yellowstone National Park may not have resulted from a rising plume of hot rock from the planet’s depths as previously suggested.

 
New simulations of North America’s underside reveal that the mantle plume blamed for powering the Yellowstone supervolcano is in fact cut off from the surface by the remnants of a lost tectonic plate. That plate keeps a lid on the plume and has prevented its heat from playing a significant role in the region’s long history of massive eruptions, geoscientists report in a paper to be published in Geophysical Research Letters.
 
That means scientists need a new explanation for Yellowstone’s origins, says study author Lijun Liu, a geodynamicist at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. “For Yellowstone, the plume is not a big deal at all,” he says."

BREAKING:Yellowstone Super-Volcano “Growls”

March 11, 2016

 

 

"The super-volcano at Yellowstone national park let out a little growl this afternoon; directly in the lake which sits atop the mouth of the monster volcano.

 

 The seismograph below reflects the readings from beneath Yellowstone Lake; the little growl given off by the volcano is quite evident:"

Yellowstone supervolcano eruptions were even bigger than we thought

Christina Beck

March 26, 2016

 

 

"Yellowstone's geysers and hotpots are 'just the latest in a protracted history of numerous catastrophic super-eruptions that have burned a track along the Snake River eastwards from Oregon to Yellowstone,' says UK geologist."

David Finn/University of California, Santa Cruz  

 

"Beautifully exposed succession of stacked Snake River eruption-units within a typical deeply incised canyon in southern Idaho. Each cliff forming unit represents a single eruption, the deposits of which can be traced from 100’s of kilometres. This terrain is typical of that which researchers are faced with when characterising the individual eruption deposits."

 

"A recent study published in the Geological Society of America Bulletin identifies an area of great volcanic activity along the Snake River Plain between Oregon and Yellowstone.
 
While scientists have long known that the supervolcano now under Yellowstone left a trail of mega-eruptions across the Pacific Northwest, an international research team has found evidence of only 12 distinct eruptions, contradicting earlier theories that the eruptions were more numerous and less extreme.
 
“The size and magnitude of this newly defined eruption is as large, if not larger, than better known eruptions at Yellowstone,” said the study’s lead author, Dr. Thomas Knott, in a University of Leicester press release, “and it is just the first in an emerging record of newly discovered super-eruptions during a period of intense magmatic activity between 8 and 12 million years ago.”
 
Scientists used paleomagnetic data, radioisotope dating, and rock and mineral chemistries to identify the size and location of these ancient eruptions.
 
One eruption, called the Castleford Crossing eruption, produced a volcanic sheet that covers approximately 14,000 square kilometers – an area the size of Connecticut – in southern Idaho.
 
Knott and his team identified 11 other super explosions that they say were likely similar in size to the well known, massive super explosions at Yellowstone."

Shawn  I was right behind you on this one, maybe nothing, maybe something, I don't know.  

 

UPDATE: IT WAS DELIBERATE! Yellowstone Public Seismographs Taken OFF-line - Wait 'til you see why!

 

"The seismographs monitoring earthquakes around the Yellowstone super-volcano have been deliberately taken OFFLINE from public view.  This is a confirmed deliberate act and will stay this way  so the public is not able to see seismic activity there.  (This story has been UPDATED as of 10:14 AM EDT on April 6, 2016)

snip
So why were the public taken OFFLINE for the public?  No one is providing any answers. Even more peculiar, the privately-funded seismographs from the University of Utah . . . are also OFFLINE to the public.  WE NOW HAVE AN ANSWER:
 
The images of seismograms that appeared on SuperStation95 have always come from from the University of Utah, a.k.a. the UUSS. Sometime on the evening of April 4th, 2016, they suddenly got rid of those images. No one is able to archive them anymore or present them to you in the efficient fashion you've come to know and love.
snip
 
After poking around to various folks involved in the University of Utah Seismic Center, one person at that facility "quietly" e-mailed us a single graphic image which gave us pause:  
 
In the image below, the Green Colored line represents the border of Yellowstone National Park.  The (barely visible) gold line represents the mouth of the super-volcano, known as the Caldera.  The red dots in the image below show all the earthquakes that have recently taken place at the Yellowstone super-volcano.  This is why the public seismographs are suddenly OFFLINE to the general public:"

My questions are:

What is the time period for the recently occurring earthquakes?

Is there a similar graphic for another similar period for comparison?

Imo, it's hard to tell whether this activity is within the normal range, without more information.

Here are a couple of comparisons I found on the web. They are older. One represents the activity in a fairly long period. The other represents the activity over a period of a year.

Volcanic Vent Opens Beneath River Outside Yellowstone Super Volcano!

April 13, 2016

 

Pictures of that fissure under Shoshone River

 

"A Volcanic Vent opened beneath the Shoshone River outside the Yellowstone super volcano at the same time the US Geological Survey and Utah Seismic Center were specifically denying trouble brewing at Yellowstone as the reason for seismic data being taken offline last week.

 
Photos below show the fissure open underwater with such heat coming out, it caused the river to give off steam!

A small hydrothermal feature spouted to life March 25 in the Shoshone River where it meanders through Cody, Wyo. — just east of Yellowstone National Park’s more famous geyser features — spewing a brew of heated gases into the water for about four days.
 
“I was surprised to see it,” said Dewey Vanderhoff, a Cody photographer who captured shots of the venting. “I’ve lived here all of my life and I’ve never seen it.”

Hot past
 
The Cody region was once called Colter’s Hell in memory of early explorer and trapper John Colter. He visited the region in the early 1800s after finishing a cross-country trek with two guys named Lewis and Clark. Colter noted the Cody-area geysers, hot springs and sulfurous smelling river and he told others. Back then the Shoshone River was known as the Stinkingwater or Stinking river for its sulfurous smell.
 
Over the ages, most of those hydrothermal features have subsided, although geyser cones, hot springs, sinkholes, a sulfur-permeated spring and an abandoned sulfur mine and mill still stand testament to the area’s more active past.
 
“We’re kind of in a lull compared to when John Colter was in this area,” said Jason Burkhardt, a Cody-based fisheries biologist for the Wyoming Game and Fish Department. “There was substantially more geothermal activity that was occurring back then.”

Yellowstone Eruption In 2016? Shocking New Video Shows What Is Really Going On At Yellowstone

 

Over the past week, our planet has been hit by large earthquake after large earthquake, and according to Volcano Discovery there are 38 volcanoes around the world that are erupting right now.  We have seen a dramatic spike in global seismic activity that is unlike anything that we have seen in ages, and that is why what is going on at Yellowstone is so incredibly alarming.  Geologists tell us that a full-blown eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano would have up to 2,000 times the power of the Mount St. Helens volcanic eruption of 1980, and approximately two-thirds of the country would immediately become uninhabitable.  As you will see below, there are signs that something big is getting ready to happen at Yellowstone, and if it does erupt all of our lives will be permanently changed forever.

I seen the orb or spacecraft. Very interesting Foopengerkle. That's the theme around volcanoes; a spacecraft entering it or leaving the area.

Yellowstone Volcano - BUSTED UT USGS Fudgeing With Charts! VIDEOPosted By: LymerickDate: Friday, 22-Apr-2016 08:00:49https://youtu.be/3lLDc-K_B4ESourcehttp://www.rumormillnews.com/cgi-bin/forum.cgi?read=45268

@Jessica; if you look at the end of the video and she is asking someone to be there to see if the video they're showing is real? If you notice it; it's a time loop. Watch it carefully; you will notice the video at the park.

Have a very good rest of your week.

Yellowstone National Park in 1871 and today

May 24, 2016

 

 

"After 140 years, the boulders, canyons and geysers of Yellowstone National Park appear to be no worse for wear, according to newly released images."

 

 

_89776619_comp_bridge976.jpg

 

The Fishing Bridge in 1871 and 2012

 

"Photographer William Henry Jackson photographed the Wyoming-based park in 1871, the year before Congress made Yellowstone the first national park in the world.

More than a century later, photographer Brad Boner set out to replicate Jackson's black-and-white photographs.
Some of his pictures will be displayed next to Jackson's this summer at the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson Hole, Wyoming."

Yellowstone pictured in 2013
 
"The top picture on this page, The Fishing Bridge, suggests the only change in those 14 decades is a man-made one - the bridge itself, says David Quammen, a contributing writer for National Geographic who wrote the magazine's May 2016 issue on Yellowstone,.
That is because the geological features of Yellowstone - the rocks and the geysers and the landscape - are still very much the same, he adds.
What has changed is the way people have populated and developed the park in that time, he says, and the photographs do not tell the whole story."

Not time for anything at Yellowstone Breezy and not for some time, if at all in the short/medium term I think.  When the pressure builds it releases it without too much damage so I don't feel anything major around that area that is a total wipeout anytime soon.

Whitefish death toll on Yellowstone climbs as FWP seeks answers

 

Fish, Wildlife and Parks crews are still searching for answers to what killed more than 700 mountain whitefish in the Yellowstone River south of Livingston last week.

 

The fish kill was detected Friday. Since then crews have documented 354 dead whitefish on the east side and 383 on the west side of the river.

A handful of suckers were also killed, but so far no dead trout have been found.

 

Although the dead zone initially was noted between Loch Leven and Pine Creek fishing access sites in the Paradise Valley, by Monday FWP had received reports of dead whitefish as far upstream as Point of Rocks (south of Emigrant), to as far downstream as Grey Bear (east of Springdale), according to Andrea Jones, FWP information and education manager in Bozeman.
