Welcome Visitor:

It's Going to Blow!...Not!

The science reporting of the recently discovered Yellowstone magma reservoir beneath the known magma chamber was just awful! The article implied that another enormous Yellowstone eruption was imminent. Scientists at the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory actually reported that new imaging improved our knowledge of the plumbing between the Yellowstone hot spot and the caldera (collapse crater where all the volcanic hot springs, etc. are found). The hazard hasn't changed at all.
