******YELLOWSTONE: the world’s most dangerous volcano is moving***********
The nation’s oldest park is also one of the most studied. The interest is not just in its amazing vistas and wildlife, but in the volcanic beast below the park. Yellowstone sits atop one of the world’s biggest, active volcanoes, one capable of laying waste to much of North America. Scientists keep an eye on it using a network of seismic and GPS sensors. Professor Emeritus Robert Smith of the University of Utah is one of those scientists. A geophysicist, Smith a leading expert on the Yellowstone super volcano. “We monitor it in real time for earthquake swarms and ground deformation.” He says the park is in constant motion. Visitors can’t see it, but the ground at their feet is moving up and down as magma pushes against the thin crust and powers the park’s many geysers. The changes are most evident at the Norris Geyser Basin. Henry Heasler, the Yellowstone Park geologist said, “It changes daily. Sometimes it’s hard to keep up with the change near boardwalks because that impacts visitor and employee safety.Why are all the hydrothermal features here?” Heasler continued, “The geysers? The mud pots? The steam vents? The hot springs? It’s because of the heat beneath our feet.” The heat from the volcano is the culprit. And beginning in 2004, volcanic pressure caused an amazing rise at the park: Three-inches a year for five-years. Professor Smith said, “That’s a lot of uplift and it’s over an area that’s over the entire Yellowstone caldera — 50-miles long of uplift.”

yes my ears stood up a couple of years ago when i learned the ground over the caldera was rising not just a bit of it fuckin all of it !
