The Grand Prismatic Spring, the largest in the United States and third largest in the world, is seen in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming

The Grand Prismatic Spring is the 3rd largest Grand Prismatic Spring in the world.  I wonder how many debris that is?

It's dying, but it's going to try and take us with it first.

Think "Predator".

gopher321: reported: Many researchers have hypothesised what would happen if Yellowstone was to erupt now, with scientists predicting it would send 2,000 more debris into the air than Mount Saint Helens did when it blew in 1980.

... and that's a lot of debris!

2000 what? 2000 trees? 2000 1977 Ford LTDs? 2000 Harry Trumans?


Rhode Islands. The unit of measure for large terrestrial comparisons is always Rhode Island.

I wish the article would let us know exactly how many debris Mount St. Helens sent in the air in 1980, so we would have some basis for comparison.

It's gonna blow, but not with the same vigor as in it's youth.  Thankfully they don't make volcano viagra.

If it becomes an extinct volcano, it will never erupt again.

Seems backwards to me. If it never erupts again, then it is extinct.

A new eruption would blow in 3980 debris.

Wellon Dowd: So which way is the plate moving over the hot spot? Are Denver or Cheyenne next?


An essay I read by an actual geologist postulated that,

a. It's well to the north of Denver moving east. So Denver isn't on it's menu.
b. Probably done at this location based on the other calderas it's left behind. Each of them erupted a couple of times over a few million years. Yellowstone, is about the age where activity stops based on that.
c. The next potential location is under a thicker layer of crust that it probably can't punch through.
d. He'll be long dead and forgotten before anyone finds out if he's right.

If that was the definition, we couldn't label any volcano as extinct until the end of time.
