    Yellowstone Supervolcano Alert: The Most Dangerous Volcano In America Is Roaring To Life
    Posted on October 3, 2013 by Michael Snyder

    Yellowstone Supervolcano 2013 300x300 Yellowstone Supervolcano Alert: The Most Dangerous Volcano In America Is Roaring To LifeRight 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.

    We watched an excellent PBS program on this volcano a few years ago. No question that unless this baby relieves some pressure in short bursts, we have a global civilization changer on our hands. The thing is...given the very, very short history of 'modern' human civilization ie maybe about 5000 years...and our race to the finish to destroy it...it may all merely be moot.

    There is always a great deal of speculation concerning volcano stories. Recounting of past disasters generally discuss the metrics but not the societal alterations such an event fosters.

    I recommend a reading of David Keys, Catastrophe - A quest for the origins of the modern world, Ballantine Books 1999 (343 pp.)

    The book studies the worldwide effects of the eruption of Krakatoa in 535 A.D.

    Essaying Yellowstone:

    It's magma reservoir is the size of Lake Michigan or the Irish Sea.
    It appears to erupt roughly once every 600,000 to 700,000 years -- and the last eruption was 630,000 years ago.
    ....
    Yellowstone is known to have erupted cataclysmically on three occasions in the past: 2 million years ago, when it spewed out nearly 600 cubic miles of magma; 1.3 million years ago, when it ejected "just" 70 cubic miles of the stuff; and 630,000 years ago, when it generated about 250 cubic miles of magma.
    Exeunt omnes.

    Can you imagine waiting thousands of years to shoot?

    This is one of those things like a meteor hitting earth and killing us all. You cannot change it, you cannot prepare for and you likely cannot survive it.

    So why worry about it?

    Two things:

    1. Can we sue the Native Peoples for breach of quiet enjoyment of realty?

    2. Will ACA cover the health problems?

    Nuclear fission or fusion is cleaner ?

    Fukushima is a clean up job and not make things explode.

    Think of sticking a ballon with a pin. It does not relieve the pressure slowly as one might hope. The exiting air tears a larger hole and it explodes in one pop. Even a smaller eruption is likely to block out the sun for awhile.
    A major eruption in Yellowstone will wipeout most humans and most indeed life on earth by blocking sunlight.

    Brilliant idea! If we nuke the entire country we wouldn't have to worry about anything again. Obamacare wouldn't go into effect so republicans would be very happy.

    Yep.. it might happen in a matter of decades or centuries.... or tens of thousands of years if not more. We simply don't know, and in any case unless we have already advanced enough as a species to evacuate the planet, and have something viable as Earth, Plan B available to us as a let's go before it blows thing... nuthin' we can do about it.

    If we could map the pressure variances below with precision within half a kilometer, and
    if we could drill over halfway from the surface to a couple of critical points (probably two kilometers down), and
    if we could get fusion devices to the bottoms of those holes while they're still functional, and
    if we could set them off simultaneously....

    we'd still have to evacuate at least six entire US states before the "big day", and
    those states would be sterile for a good decade, and
    they'd remain uninhabitable for twenty years....

    plus most of the midwest wouldn't be growing any crops for a dozen years or so,
    not to mention the loss of almost all east-west connections across the US....


    I suppose we could do it, but there wouldn't likely be a lot of difference between that and the natural event. And the rest of the world might get pissed because odds are we'd have a couple of years with no summer, at least in the northern hemisphere, which would mean no harvests.

    Yeah, we could release the pressure -- but not in anything resembling a controlled fashion, and not in a way that would eliminate the disaster aspect of it all.

    "Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. "

    The Yellowstone geysers have been relieving pressure for hundreds of thousands of years. If we drill big vent tubes into the earth that might help.

    I'm not really concerned that it will happen any time soon, it's just I haven't heard about it going to do so much damage when it does happen. I really wanted to see what Kuli had to say about it.

    One of the best sites:

    http://volcanoes.usgs.gov/observatories/yvo/index.html

    Note:

    The U.S. Volcano Observatories will remain operational during the lapse of federal government appropriations. Basic volcano monitoring will continue, as will forecasts and regular updates of volcanic activity. However, because of reduced staff, instrument network maintenance will cease, meaning that our monitoring capability will degrade over time. This website will remain functional, but only those pages containing information about current volcano hazards will be maintained.

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

    Next time an asteroid is on a collision course with Earth we can get Sean Connery, Michael Biehn and Bruce Willis to fly to outer space and intercept it, set off a bomb to change it's direction directly into the volcano. That would plug the cone and stop the eruption.

    It would make a pretty cool movie besides.

    I do like the drill a hole theory to relieve pressure. Now if we can just convince BP that oil is down there then they will dig the hole for free.

    The geysers no nothing to relieve the pressure in the volcano caldera. The volcano merely heats water nearer the surface until the steam and water erupt.
    Any attempt to relieve the pressure in the caldera would be like a pin in a balloon, causing the very eruption sought to be avoided.

    Yeah but how do they make it as profitable as that unstable oil. I mean how to you drum up market gains off of regional instability when it has to do with the earth molten core...... I have faith they can do it.

    Love to see your source. The Nat Geo program reported that the sulfur smells were a result of venting gasses from the volcanic lava flows. Additionally, on wiki... which for this instance is properly sourced....

    So while it keeps a major eruption at bay, the reality is that it is slowly building a deck that will eventually block the vents and then the top will blow.

    If you wanted a source for my statement, you should have, and undoubtedly did read the very next sentence from Wikepedia after your quote.
    :"Many of these features build up sinter, geyserite, or travertine deposits around and within them.
    The various geyser basins are located where rainwater and snowmelt can percolate into the ground, get indirectly superheated by the underlying Yellowstone hotspot, and then erupt at the surface as geysers, hot springs, and fumaroles."

    The point is that the water and steam are not coming out of the caldera and do not relieve the pressure in it. I said nothing about the gases.

    No you said it isn't venting and then deflected to the reason water spouts. Regardless it does vent many gasses and therefore does vent from the thermal activity that causes the whole thing. Not enough to stave off an eventual massive ejection but just enough to slow the eruption down and build material a top the eventual eruption. So sure you are correct water boils and erupts because of heat transfer but you are incorrect that the situation causing the geysers does not vent both heat and pressure from the thermal activity. Subtle difference I understand, but different it is.

    If you are suggesting that the material building up are from inside the caldera, your source does not support that. The sinter and travertine are calcium carbonate (lime scale as in the teapot) while the geyserite is silica, all dissolved into the water and precipitating out at eruption. Follow the links from your wike quote. There is no suggestion that material is coming from the caldera.

    And the sulfer gasses ? That doesnt come from the volcanic smelting pot?

    The Yellowstone geysers have been relieving pressure for hundreds of thousands of years. If we drill big vent tubes into the earth that might help.

    Of course, we may unleash lavasaurus or magmasaurus.
    I think I will use magmasaurus, but shouldn't the M be capitalized?

    If the eruption is decent it will be a Magmanado!

    Your article says that the hydrogen sulfide comes from deep in the earth, but nothing suggests that it comes from within the caldera itself. We cannot assume that it does.

    Sulfur and silicon and nearly the same weight. I would expect the two to appear in the same relative abundance in whatever material they come from.

    The amount of gas released in the water cycle for the geysers is negligible. The water itself is ground water heated by the volcano, so the spouting geyser isn't relieving any pressure, it's just the pressure of boiling water. That water does indeed bring minerals and gases up, but the proportion of the actual pressure building below is insignificant. Also insignificant are the mineral terraces -- to make a difference in the behavior of the volcano they'd have to build not just meters deep, but kilometers.

    In other words, the geysers don't "keep a major eruption at bay", and don't "block the vents and then the top will blow".

    I have looked around to find an answer to the question of gas releases at Yellowstone, but haven’t found anything definitive.

    Future volcanism at Yellowstone caldera: Insights from geochemistry of young volcanic units and monitoring of volcanic unrest
    (The Geological Society of America; September 2012)

    Southwestern and Central Caldera

    [In “recent” eruptions], degassing may have begun long before eruption while magma was still accumulating, suggesting the possibility of prolonged pre-eruptive degassing crises.

    These, consecutively, in C E & P?

    Have I awakened in an alternate universe?

    I was going to make a similar comment to Benvolio, that the geysers are caused by water from the water table infiltrating cracks and reaching super-boiling temperatures by being in the vicinity of the magma which has heated materials above it, and suddenly spewing out (and upward from the ground) when the pressure of vapor from the superheated water cannot be held back from the pressure of the water column. At least that's my understanding of how geysers work. If there is any relief of pressure below, or any cooling from the transfer of heat out of the geysers, it is almost undetectable in comparison to the hundreds or thousands of cubic miles of magma and its pressure and heat.

    Yes.

    As an idea of the proportional difference... just as the minerals brought up by water make material that would fill truckloads while the magma chamber below could fill the Great Lakes, so does the pressure released by these surface processes compare to what is building below.
