The Question of the Yellowstone caldera

Recommended Posts

Thorvald

Very recently, there have been 3 volcanic eruptions. One in Alaska, one in Central Negros Occidental, and just now in Japan. The one in Japan was preceded by earthquakes. So the question is whether the other two volcanic eruptions were preceded by earthquakes, because there have been a number of earthquakes in Wyoming where that ancient monster volcano lies dormant, yet is overdue to erupt.....?

Just imagaine, it it blows, then we will finally have a White Christmas in the Philippines...with temperatures to match.  What a catastrophic way to learn about the seasons, eh?

one in Central Negros Occidental

 

Are you talking about Mt Kanlaon letting off a little steam?  the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) said "no lava flow effused from the summit crater.  That's really reaching if you are looking for a doom and gloom story.

 

I do find it interesting that Japan had two large earthquakes and the second was much larger than the first.  I have found aftershocks to be smaller than the original in most instances, but not this time.

There is no question Yellowstone will blow, but to answer the "when" question is probably impossible at this point in time.  One thing is for sure, most of the residents of Wyoming, Montana, and South Dakota will not survive either the eruption or the resulting ash.  It is also sure to be a major influence on climate change, but not in a good way.  Yet, it has nothing to do with human actions.  You'll have to blame this one on God.

Al Gore will find some way to blame the 'deniers', and 97% of scientists will fall in line.

A perspective on time is in order here.  The last eruption of Yellowstone was approximately 640,000 years ago. The estimated intervals of the two previous eruptions was aprox. 1 million years, and between

the second and third, .6 of a million.  Granted, one could occur tomorrow, but likely not for awhile yet.  Even if we are 99% through our next interval, it will not happen for another 6000 years.  I suspect that we, as a people, a nation, perhaps even as a species, will not exist by the time of the next 'big one'.  Me?  I'm more afraid of Hillary becoming president NEXT year.

Nothing out of the ordinary here just plate tectonics at work.

 

The hundreds of small earthquakes in the US are do to fracking!

at my age I'm not going to worry about something I have no control over. Just what I need, something else to worry about.

Not looking for doom and gloom, just trying to figure out if earthquakes are a precursor to impending volcanic eruptions. And I don't live that far away from Wyoming.
