Yellowstone Super Volcano
September  2010  
  Research suggests activity is fueling Pacific Northwest's volcanic activity.
A plume of molten rock rising from deep beneath Yellowstone National Park is probably what is  fueling the region's volcanic activity, as well as tectonic plate oddities across the Pacific Northwest, new research suggests.

Building on a growing body of evidence, Mathias Obrebski of the University of California, Berkeley, and his colleagues created the most convincing picture to date of a Yellowstone mantle plume — one that extends from about 621 miles below the surface of the Earth.

Debates have long been waged over whether erupting and shaking in the area over the last few millions of years — and a track marked out by a chain of volcanic calderas along the Yellowstone Snake River Plain in Idaho — could be the work of a column of hot rock rising up from deep within the Earth's mantle. The mantle is the layer of hot, viscous rock beneath the planet's crust.
The very existence of such mantle plumes is doubted by some scientists.

"They are extraordinary features, in size and in the fact that they travel upward through the whole mantle in solid form," said Vic Camp of San Diego State University, who was not involved in the new study. "It's a really simple idea to explain a number of different phenomena on Earth. But the simple idea was very difficult to test."

"Chemical and physical volcanology evidence suggested a plume, but this is the first seismic proof," Camp told OurAmazingPlanet.

Obrebski's team used data from a new, dense deployment of seismometers, called the Earthscope USArray, to get a high-resolution image of the once-elusive mantle, along with information on the unusual structure of the subducting Juan de Fuca slab to its west. The Juan de Fuca plate is a small tectonic plate jammed in between the much larger Pacific and North American plates.

Much like an MRI scan of a human body, seismometers' antennas capture seismic waves of earthquakes traveling through the earth from various directions. The waves' speeds provide hints of the materials and temperatures they pass through, informing the resulting 3-D image, explained Robert Smith of the University of Utah, who wasn't involved in the new research but whose group had recently imaged Yellowstone's mantle plume down to about 372 miles (600 km).

The plume is thought to be more or less stationary, with the North American plate — and the Juan de Fuca subducting beneath it — slowly sliding southwesterly over the plume. So what is now Oregon probably sat where Yellowstone is today about 17 million years ago, baking and breaking over a hot plume of rock, Camp said.

Obrebski said in an interview:  "There's been subduction in the [Oregon] region for more than 150 million years, so we'd expect to see a large continuous slab. But what we see are just fragments."

The location of those pieces, he added, suggests that the slab and the plume are tightly related.
The findings were detailed in the July 22 edition of the journal Geophysical Research Letters.

These observations may also help explain the unusual lack of deep seismology in the Pacific Northwest, and perhaps shed light on some larger mysteries. "If you look at the mass extinctions on Earth," Camp said, "we think that a few may have been associated with eruptions from mantle plumes."

Yellowstone Plume: 400 Miles Long, Larger Than Thought
11 April, 2011  Using an analysis of the electrical conductivity of the Yellowstone volcano, researchers at the University of Utah say the plume is larger than previously assumed, descending at a 40-degree tilt from Yellowstone National Park and extending some 400 miles from east to west.

That's 250 miles larger than a 2009 study using seismic waves from earthquakes to model the plume. In that study, the plume was shown to be some 150 miles long, descending some 410 miles below the planet's surface.

Using electrical conductivity may be the more accurate method of determining the size of the plume: it measures electricity generated by molten silicate rocks and hot briny water mixed in partly molten rock. (Seismic-wave research cannot measure liquids, but it can detect molten or partly molten rock that slow seismic waves.)

"It's like comparing ultrasound and MRI in the human body; they are different imaging technologies," says geophysics Professor Michael Zhdanov, principal author of the new study and an expert on measuring magnetic and electrical fields on Earth's surface to find oil, gas, minerals and geologic structures underground.

Despite the differences in the specifics, both sets of measurements yielded roughly the same picture.

"It's a bigger size" in the geoelectric picture, says study co-author Robert B. Smith, professor emeritus and research professor of geophysics and a coordinating scientist of the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory. "We can infer there are more fluids" than shown by seismic images. "This body that conducts electricity is in about the same location with similar geometry as the seismically imaged Yellowstone plume."

There are, of course, several models of the plume floating around out there, some sensing a deeper plume that goes out only 200 or miles and another that extends more than 400 miles at a sharper angle to the ground.

Seismic and ground-deformation studies previously showed the top of the rising volcanic plume flattens out like a 300-mile-wide pancake 50 miles beneath Yellowstone. There, giant blobs of hot and partly molten rock break off the top of the plume and slowly rise to feed the magma chamber – a spongy, banana-shaped body of molten and partly molten rock located about 4 miles to 10 miles beneath the ground at Yellowstone.

The study was conducted by Zhdanov, Smith, two members of Zhdanov's lab – research geophysicist Alexander Gribenko and geophysics Ph.D. student Marie Green – and computer scientist Martin Cuma of the University of Utah's Center for High Performance Computing. Funding came from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Consortium for Electromagnetic Modeling and Inversion, which Zhdanov heads. The new University of Utah study has been accepted for publication in Geophysical Research Letters, which plans to publish it within the next few weeks.

Sent this to Ed Waldon.  The entire Earth is heating up -
quakes, volcanoes - Yellowstone is part of this.
Japan is breaking up and will sink.

I know it sounds crazy to say this - but the Lord impressed me months ago to LOOK FOR HIS MERCY in judgments.
Japan's nuclear disaster followed the quake-tsunami disaster.

Its truly possible that the nuclear disaster is GOD's MERCY -
to compel the people off that doomed island before it sinks and vanishes.
Please dont mock.

Yellowstone: New Picture Emerges Of A More Active, Less ‘Super’ Volcano
April 30, 2012  New research is casting doubts on the frequency or even the possibility of a ‘super-eruption’ that could blot out the sun from the Earth with a thick veil of volcanic ash.
A joint research team from Washington State University and the Scottish Universities Environmental Research Centre said the biggest Yellowstone eruption on record was actually two different eruptions at least 6,000 years apart.

According to the study published in the June 2012 issue of the Quaternary Geochronology, these eruptions are thought to have created the Huckleberry Ridge around 2 million years ago.
The first eruption generated 2,200 cubic kilometers of volcanic material, while the second, smaller eruption generated 290 cubic kilometers.
The first eruption is still considered to be ‘super’ according to the Volcanic Explosivity Index (VEI) and likely covered the sky in volcanic ash from California to the Mississippi River.

Yellowstone Monthly Update Volcano Alert Level NORMAL - Aviation Color Code GREEN
May 1, 2012  

During the month of April 2012, the University of Utah reports 29 earthquakes were located in the Yellowstone National Park region. The largest was a magnitude 2.4 event on April 2 at 6:27 PM MDT, located about 5 miles north northwest of West Yellowstone, MT No earthquake swarms were detected in April. Yellowstone earthquake activity continues at relatively low background levels. Slow subsidence of the caldera, which began in early 2010, continues. Current deformation patterns at Yellowstone are well within historical norms.

Yellowstone geysers become active again after dormant periods
June 23, 2012 – YELLOWSTONE WATCH

Yellowstone geyser enthusiasts are reporting that a handful of Yellowstone National Park geysers appear to be active again after periods of dormancy,
including one geyser that last erupted almost two decades ago.
Morning Geyser, quiet for 18 years, is now active, and there is news that an electronic monitor on Echinus in Norris Geyser Basin picked up an eruption.
North Goggles Geyser has also started erupting more regularly than the lone annual display it has typically shown over the past few years.
The last time it was this active was 2004. Joining the list of newly reactivated thermal features are Fan and Mortar geysers, which may be beginning an active cycle.
Morning Geyser is one of the tallest and prettiest geysers in the Lower Geyser Basin.  The wide eruptions have the potential of reaching 200 feet tall.
It is located in the Fountain Paint Pots area, just behind Fountain Geyser.  Morning Geyser last erupted in 1994. The first reported eruption this year occurred on Wed., June 20. A second eruption was reported the following day, with geyser gazers reporting online that Morning Geyser spewed for up to 30 minutes, reaching a height of 200 feet. For the past few weeks, geyser gazer Maureen Edgerton has watched a change in her favorite geyser, Fountain Geyser, of longer intervals between eruptions than seen in recent years. It may be that there is a connection between Morning Geyser and Fountain Geyser, and a change in Fountain Geyser could result in changes in other thermal features in the area. The announcement of a third geyser reactivating came from an email sent to a geyser email list from Yellowstone National Park ranger Denise Herman, who relayed a message from Jacob B. Lowenstern, the scientist in charge of the U.S. Geological Survey’sYellowstone Volcano Observatory. Lowenstern noted that a temperature probe indicated that Echinus erupted at 3:25 a.m. on Mon., June 28, stating that “no one saw it, but it is the first known eruption since January 2011

YELLOWSTONE EARTHQUAKES
KULR8  Jan 12, 2009
 Recent earthquake activity in Yellowstone National Park has raised concern that the quakes are a sign that the supervolcano located there is ready to erupt; bringing catastrophic damage and triggering a severe change in weather.
It is a valid concern, as Yellowstone is centered over the largest supervolcano in North America. But park scientists say there are explosions of another kind to be concerned about that are more likely to occur in our lifetime.
The ground has settled at Yellowstone Park after about 900 earthquakes occurred here between December 26 through the first week of the new year. An event referred to as an earthquake swarm.
"We've had larger swarms in the past, larger earthquakes, but the fact this is in Yellowstone Lake and it's releasing a lot of energy is very interesting to us," said Hank Heasler, park geologist.

Repeated Seismic Activity at Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, World's Largest Volcano
October 14, 2012
In the past few hours, Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming/Idaho, has been hit by 6 progressively larger and sequential earthquakes ranging from 2.5, 2.6, 2.7, 2.8. 2.9 and the most recent 3.0 magnitude.
The world's largest volcano is located at the Yellowstone National Park, and a number of experts believe that when the volcano erupts there will be NO prior warning.

Yellowstone and the 2012 Mayan Prophecy, by Jon King
Is the Supervolcano beneath Yellowstone set to blow in 2012?
Geological surveys show that the caldera at Yellowstone National Park in America has been rising at the slightly alarming rate of around 3 inches a year since 2004, three times the historic average.
This coupled with the significantly high number of earthquakes detected beneath Yellowstone recently has given some geologists cause for concern, because if Yellowstone blows, much of the United States blows with it.

Earthquake swarms shake Yellowstone
Sept. 23, 2013
 Bob Smith had never witnessed 2 simultaneous earthquake swarms in his 53 years of monitoring seismic activity around the Yellowstone Caldera.
Bob Smith, a University of Utah geophysics professor, has seen 3 quake swarms at once.
None of the recent quakes were strong enough to cause damage or throw off the cycle of the Old Faithful geyser eruptions.
A strong earthquake like in 1959 did change the interval of Old Faithful eruptions.

Temblors hit Lewis Lake, the Lower Geyser Basin and the northwest part of Norris Geyser Basin.
The largest earthquake - 3.6 - shook the ground near Old Faithful Geyser on Sept. 15.
Yellowstone swarms started Sept. 10 and were shaking until noon Sept. 16 - about 130 earthquakes under 3.6 have occurred.

Yellowstone Supervolcano Alert: The Most Dangerous Volcano In America Is Roaring To Life

Right now, the ground underneath Yellowstone National Park is rising at a record rate.  In fact, it is rising at the rate of about three inches per year.  The reason why this is such a concern is because underneath the park sits the Yellowstone supervolcano – the largest volcano in North America.  Scientists tell us that it is inevitable that it will erupt again one day, and when it does the devastation will be almost unimaginable.  A full-blown eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano would dump a 10 foot deep layer of volcanic ash up to 1,000 miles away, and it would render much of the United States uninhabitable.  When most Americans think of Yellowstone, they tend to conjure up images of Yogi Bear and “Old Faithful”, but the truth is that sleeping underneath Yellowstone is a volcanic beast that could destroy our nation in a single day and now that beast is starting to wake up.

The Yellowstone supervolcano is so vast that it is hard to put it into words.  According to the Daily Mail, the magma “hotspot” underneath Yellowstone is approximately 300 miles wide…

   The Yellowstone Caldera is one of nature’s most awesome creations and sits atop North America’s largest volcanic field.

   Its name means ‘cooking pot’ or ‘cauldron’ and it is formed when land collapses following a volcanic explosion.

   In Yellowstone, some 400 miles beneath the Earth’s surface is a magma ‘hotspot’ which rises to 30 miles underground before spreading out over an area of 300 miles across.

   Atop this, but still beneath the surface, sits the slumbering volcano.

When most Americans think of volcanic eruptions in the United States, they remember the catastrophic eruption of Mount St. Helens back in 1980.  But that eruption would not even be worth comparing to a full-blown eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano.

And now the area around Yellowstone is becoming increasingly seismically active.  In fact, Professor Bob Smith says that he has never seen anything like this in the 53 years that he has been watching Yellowstone…

   Until recently, Bob Smith had never witnessed two simultaneous earthquake swarms in his 53 years of monitoring seismic activity in and around the Yellowstone Caldera.

   Now, Smith, a University of Utah geophysics professor, has seen three swarms at once.

In September, 130 earthquakes hit Yellowstone over the course of a single week.  This has got many Yellowstone observers extremely concerned…

   Yellowstone’s recent earthquake swarms started on Sept. 10 and were shaking until about 11:30 a.m. Sept. 16.

   “A total of 130 earthquakes of magnitude 0.6 to 3.6 have occurred in these three areas, however, most have occurred in the Lower Geyser Basin,” a University of Utah statement said. “Notably much of seismicity in Yellowstone occurs as swarms.”

So what is the worst case scenario?

Well, according to the Daily Mail, a full-blown eruption of Yellowstone could leave two-thirds of the United States completely uninhabitable…

   It would explode with a force a thousand times more powerful than the Mount St Helens eruption in 1980.

   Spewing lava far into the sky, a cloud of plant-killing ash would fan out and dump a layer 10ft deep up to 1,000 miles away.

   Two-thirds of the U.S. could become uninhabitable as toxic air sweeps through it, grounding thousands of flights and forcing millions to leave their homes.

Can you think of another potential disaster that could accomplish the same thing?

That is why what is going on at Yellowstone right now is so important, and the American people deserve the truth.  The following are some more facts about Yellowstone that I compiled that I included in a previous article…

#1 A full-scale eruption of Yellowstone could be up to 1,000 time more powerful than the eruption of Mount St. Helens in 1980.

#2 A full-scale eruption of Yellowstone would spew volcanic ash 25 miles up into the air.

#3 The next eruption of Yellowstone seems to be getting closer with each passing year.  Since 2004, some areas of Yellowstone National Park have risen by as much as 10 inches.

#4 There are approximately 3,000 earthquakes in the Yellowstone area every single year.

#5 In the event of a full-scale eruption of Yellowstone, virtually the entire northwest United States will be completely destroyed.

#6 A massive eruption of Yellowstone would mean that just about everything within a 100 mile radius of Yellowstone would be immediately killed.

#7 A full-scale eruption of Yellowstone could also potentially dump a layer of volcanic ash that is at least 10 feet deep up to 1,000 miles away.

#8 A full-scale eruption of Yellowstone would cover virtually the entire midwest United States with volcanic ash.  Food production in America would be almost totally wiped out.

#9 The “volcanic winter” that a massive Yellowstone eruption would cause would radically cool the planet.  Some scientists believe that global temperatures would decline by up to 20 degrees.

#10 America would never be the same again after a massive Yellowstone eruption.  Some scientists believe that a full eruption by Yellowstone would render two-thirds of the United States completely uninhabitable.

#11 Scientists tell us that it is not a matter of “if” Yellowstone will erupt but rather “when” the next inevitable eruption will take place.

What makes all of this even more alarming is that a number of other very prominent volcanoes around the world are starting to roar back to life right now as well.

For example, an Inquisitr article from back in July described how “the most dangerous volcano in Mexico” is starting to become extremely active…

   Popocatepetl Volcano is at it again. The active volcano near Mexico City erupted again this morning, spewing ash up into the sky.

   The volcano is currently in the middle of an extremely active phase. According to the International Business Times, the volcano has registered 39 exhalations in the last 24 hours.

   An eruption earlier this month caused several flights to be canceled in and out of Mexico City.

   The BBC notes that officials raised the alert level yellow following Popocateptl’s eruption on Saturday morning. Yellow is the third-highest caution level on the city’s seven step scale.

And an NBC News article from August noted that one of the most dangerous volcanoes in Japan has erupted 500 times so far this year…

   Ash wafted as high as 3 miles above the Sakurajima volcano in the southern city of Kagoshima on Sunday afternoon, forming its highest plume since the Japan Meteorological Agency started keeping records in 2006. Lava flowed just over half a mile from the fissure, and several huge volcanic rocks rolled down the mountainside.

   Though the eruption was more massive than usual, residents of the city of about 600,000 are used to hearing from their 3,664-foot neighbor. Kagoshima officials said in a statement that this was Sakurajima’s 500th eruption this year alone.

So what does all of this mean?

Are we now entering a time when volcanic eruptions will become much more common all over the globe?

Could we rapidly be approaching the day when an absolutely devastating volcanic eruption will paralyze much of North America?
