Largest earthquake since 1980 strikes Yellowstone Park, at site of rapid uplift
USGA ^

Posted on 03/30/2014 10:28:20 AM PDT by TroutGuy

The University of Utah Seismograph Stations reports that a light earthquake occurred at 06:34 AM on March 30, 2014 (MDT). The epicenter of the magnitude 4.8 shock was located 4 miles north-northeast of Norris Geyser Basin in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming. This earthquake is part of a series of earthquakes that began in this area on Thursday, March 27. As of 8:15 am today, this series has included at least 25 earthquakes in addition to the main shock, with the largest of magnitude 3.1. The magnitude 4.8 main shock was reported felt in Yellowstone National Park and in the towns of West Yellowstone and Gardiner, Montana.

Today's event is the largest earthquake at Yellowstone since February 22, 1980, and occurred near the center of a region of recent ground uplift described in a YVO Information Statement on February 18, 2014. The Yellowstone Volcano Observatory has been tracking this uplift episode for about 7 months.

"Based on the style and location of today's earthquake, at this time YVO sees no indication of additional geologic activity other than continuing seismicity."

We're doomed :-)

This is the largest since 1980. In 34 years the headline will be LARGEST EARTHQUAKE SINCE 2044 FELT AT YELLOWSTONE.

I was there in 08 and rangers were worried about Norris basin increase in activity back then.

Why is the USGA (US Golf Association) reporting on this? I thought did just golf.

Hard to tell if this is caused by fracking, global warming, Bush, or racism.

Not to worry. Legislation is in the works to limit the size and damage caused by erfquakes. Be about as effective as all the climate change nazi legislation in the works. Yup, I’m a denier. And proud of it. It may be changing but I’m pretty much thinkin’ we can’t do anything about it.

The activities of man are nothing more than a single mite on a flea in the hair of a bull buffalo when you talk about the geological forces at work in Yellowstone.

I know you were being sarcastic, but I was not! Yellowstone is probably the most fascinating and least understood geological region in the world. The amount of energy found there is a small glimpse of what lies beneath our feet.

Yes, Algore says the temperature in the core of the Earth is several million degrees.

That’s a LOT of energy.

One thing seldom mentioned is the general (very) long term trend of a cooling core and diminishing volcanism and tectonic activity.

Man made climate change must be causing this. Can’t Obama do something, pass a law, or something? Maybe Al Gore needs to go on another speaking tour, maybe that will help.

I saw a video of the bison running down the road en masse last Thursday. They felt the vibrations or something. Surely, someone is observing the animals for clues to what is ahead.

There is definitely something going on, hundreds of quakes up and down California and now this? I hope it’s all just stress relief.

Oklahoma is also experiencing earthquakes this weekend, as well as southern California.

No one will know for sure until reporterette Deb Feyerick has weighed in on whether it's the result of global warming.

Gore is a genius who made 100 million dollars (or more) from a progressive scheme to increase government control over mankind. He became the face of the largest fraud ever perpetrated on mankind. Not bad for a “C” student who was pretty unremarkable in a town full of unremarkable politicians. He even came within a few hundred votes of being President. A frightening thought that reveals much about the real state of our nation and world.

We should give him some credit even as we laugh at his statements and predictions. He is laughing all the way to the bank as they stroke his chakra. We pay for it every time we drive or go to the grocery store.

I’ve been to that Norris Geyser Basin ... and it looks like a scene out of the movie “One Million Years BC”. I almost expected to see dinosaurs walking about, among the barren and steaming land!

It’ll take a couple passes of the InSAR satellite to get new data on deformation

http://volcanoes.usgs.gov/activity/methods/insar/index.php

http://volcanoes.usgs.gov/volcanoes/yellowstone/yellowstone_monitoring_51.html

That should qualify as a separate post, as I have a feeling the data won’t be encouraging.

People should be aware, too, that Yellowstone National Park has about 1,000 earthquakes a year there. At least that’s what the Ranger told us.
