Yellowstone Shakes

Posted in Blog | Comments Off on Yellowstone Shakes

A 4.8 magnitude earthquake has me a little nervous. It happened Sunday (3/30/2014). To somebody in California, Ecuador, or Haiti, that’s nothing. This rattler was in Yellowstone.

Yellowstone is drop-dead gorgeous and the first part of the US set aside as a Natural Park. It’s also a huge super-volcano (caldera). There’ve been mega-blasts over the past 18-million years, including 2.1 million, 1.3 million and 640k years ago. That most recent eruption put 240 cubic miles of debris into the atmosphere. It’s enough to ruin your whole day anywhere.

Earthquakes are commonly caused by movement in continental plates. Around a volcano, earthquakes often mean lava is on the move.

Lava under Yellowstone’s is moving, and its stunning plateau is rising. Geologists aren’t sounding any alarms that I’ve heard, but they’re keeping their eye on the 1260 square mile volcano.

Gulp. May the liquid under my favorite US National Park be calm for a very long time.
