Yellowstone Super Volcano Roaring To Life, Professor Bob Smith Says Nothing Like This In The 53 Years He Has Watched it

Yellowstone Supervolcano

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?

If you hear this one has gone off, hold back the next car payment. In fact Yellowstone was mentioned in the post below as what is transpiring in the Gulf of Mexico has the ability to severely affect it. The earth’s faults and magma tubes are intimately related and changes in one can influence others.

  1. dub, even though we’ve seen this kind of reportage before re. yellowstone, here is my 2.5 cents.

    there is a global crustal event underway. like any good event of this magnitude (or should that be magmanitude!!!) it is unfolding through earthquakes, sinkholes, the appearance and disappearance of micro-islands (reminiscent of krakatoa), like just happened in pakistan.

    a low and slow wave which will continue to build for the next few years and then we’ll go down or up together.

    I think AGW is the junk science they decided to throw at us to keep people bam-boozled just enough so that this tectonic shift, which really started showing right around 2000 has gone largely un-noticed till just recently.

    I’m travelling and experiencing…quite a time, all said and nothing done.
    ;-)

    Hello Dublinmick…..it’s mighty interesting that the National Parks are presently shut down!

    No doubt about it brother Vivek, I am just so amazed at times I feel compelled to point it out! :) You and I have discussed this for years. Over the years we have seen snips about “yellowstone is about to blow baby!” Lately it is giving appearances of being more imminent.

    Thanks for getting me away from the old “somebody just said something wrong on the internet mode” I am one of the worst to fall into that. What is AGW? I should probably know that but I am drinking wild turkey at the moment. It is the only one left that is non-gmo outside four roses.

    Hello Dubs…A..?….global warming…..

    • Right on Terrance, Anthropogenic (man made) Global Warming.
      What I like to call the incontinent truth! :-)

      Brother Dubs, the wild turkey, smooth and hot. When I was a drinker (and I WAS one, phew!!!), my poison was Jim Beam…. :-)
