Just something possibly silly, but look at this data:
[link to earthquake.usgs.gov]

It pretty much looks like a circle up there in the NW, with an extension to the NE pushing against it.

It's the only place in the world with such a regional circle. I wonder how that translates deep inside the Earth, where everything is so much closer.


And the southern part of Alaska looks like it's soon to break apart.


EDIT:

When I just expanded the Map, I then saw it was not just the NW.

Also, there are pulses all over the park today.

[link to www.isthisthingon.org]

Moose Creek, west Boundary, Holmes Hill, Joseph's Coat, Pelican Cove and more...

All showing a series of 5 pulses, just over a quarter of an hour apart, starting just after 12:00 utc.

Looks like a heartbeat on an ECG.

Thoughts, anyone?

Okay. For perspective on the quakes showing up on helicorders in the park, especially at Madison River: [link to www.isthisthingon.org]


The quake recorded at 8:34 was the 3.8 in Idaho at 8:34

The quake recorded at 9:04 was the 0.9 km shallow 5.5 in Alaska at 8:57:12. It took about 7 minutes to arrive.

The quake recorded at 9:58 was the 22.9 km deep 4.9 in Alaska at 9:51:07. It took about 7 minutes to arrive.

The quake recorded at 10:04 was the 4.7 in Alaska at 9:57:08. It took about 7 minutes to arrive.


Now, the one at 11:09:30 could have been one of two quakes:

If it was Alaska, it would have taken 29 minutes to arrive...which is much longer than the 'typical' 7 minutes arrival times we have seen this morning...although it was 'only' a 4.1 mag quake, happening at 10:40:53 at a depth of 10 km.

I am pretty certain that it was the very deep 68.8 km 5.5 at 10:57 in the North Mariana Islands, which took approx 13 minutes to arrive.

I say 'pretty certain' because way back a month ago when we had the two large quakes in the Solomon Islands and at Chile, the arrival time was very similar for those deep quakes.

______________

I just want to make sure that we don't get a bit unnerved looking at today's helicorder traces in the park.

I was trying to figure them out. They are just about 30 1/2 minutes apart.

Someone suggested yesterday (?) that is could be solar recharge signals...but the local time starts too early, at 5:04 a.m.

Is it possible it is a 'dying battery' signal instead...which ends just about when the Sun is high enough to start recharging?

Each signal is the sae, so it looks as if the same thing is causing these pulses.

Great work, as always, EM!

I vote for the Mariana Island quake being the culprit.
The Alaska quake was fairly small, and 29 mins is way too long a travel time.

Excellent deduction there - I would imagine that they put some sort of artificial "signal" in to tell them there's aproblem, such as low battery voltage. Makes a lot of sense.

Yellowstone Volcano Conspiracy Theories Claim USGS Is Hiding Earthquake, Fissures Data Over Supervolcano Fears



Yellowstone volcano conspiracy theories are claiming that the USGS is hiding the earthquake data that points to fissures opening up around Yellowstone national park. Further, they claim authorities are secretly evacuating towns in the area because of fears over a Yellowstone supervolcano forming as the caldera gets ready to pop.

Most likely we will see ore reports such as this as tie goes on. At least this one attempts to show where errors in thinking may have originated.

As far as secret evacuations go, in this day and age I highly doubt that ANY agency could pull this off. There would bound to be at least ONE disgruntled teenager tweeting:

"Damn. I just made the cheerleading squad, and now we're being evacuated. Oops! Not suppose to tell #FUyellowstone

Everyday I look at the still cams to see if there's any smoke rising in their view points. I know the park is big, and I will admit that I also wonder if there might be places where magma has breached the surface, but I know I can only go with what's in my ability to know...which isn't all that much.

Once again we are relegated to grasping at straws.

I have always said that these signals occurring at 'the same time' indicate something other than natural occurrence...especially when in such perfect sequence.

Not natural geomagnetics et al from Space.
Not natural magma movements all across the board.
Not from the Earth fracturing or moving or moaning or groaning.

Radio signal. Electromagnetic pulse. SOMETHING generated that causes an electrical pulse to be picked up.

Perhaps from a passing satellite?

What, then? That's the mystery.


On another note, I am, perhaps, more interested in finding out what causes the pulses to be recorded at differing amplitudes.

This might help us discover where things are more and less intense under ground...such as depth of magma, direction, consistency and the like.

Remember that we are only seeing a raw trace which lasts about 20 seconds.

Spreading them out and really investigating the subtle differences in nanoseconds will allow for other things to be visualized. And THIS is what we cannot possibly be seeing as armchair observers, looking solely at a picture of a trace.

cool2

Hopefully this is exactly what they are doing, by generating these pulses at times when they have the time, or reason to, dig a little deeper.

IDK.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 56674568




I have looked at that video a number of times...and I do not see what you are referring to. hmm.

What I did do is compare the opening shots to pictures I took a number of days ago.

I do see two trees which appear to be tilted, yet, they look exactly the same in the older shot...although the ground definitely has that white coating on it now, which was not evident then.

This is the same 'white' stuff I now see on the hill. If you caught a post I made some days ago, I commented that I saw a mass of thick whitish stuff spew out from the mound to the NE of Old Faithful.

I think that around those steamy days a week or so ago, excessive water may have eroded into it excessive volumes of minerals, or simply picked them up, which have been coming out with the steam now and then ever since, falling where they may from the steam they are traveling on.

I also suspect that this is the cause of the fine particles we have seen at least twice on most of the camera lens covers.

I did do a search, trying to determine what it might be, I did see that magnesium, barium. silica are among the minerals which are deposited during geyser emissions...and, I further tried to find out if these travel on magma -and might be considered a lava precursor, or lava-like or even a FORM OF MAGMA, which could then be an indication that things are ramping up.

Well, so far, I have NOT found ANY paper which allows that lava can have such thin viscosity as to be considered lava at all, even if mixed into and emitted along with volumes of steam and water.

Ha! My mind tells me to keep looking, because I HAVE read this about rhyolite lava:

"Rhyolite is a felsic extrusive rock. Due to the high silica content, rhyolite lava is very viscous. It flows slowly, like tooth paste squeezed out of a tube, and tends to pile up and form lava domes. If rhyolite magma is gas rich it can erupt explosively, forming a frothy solidified magma called pumice (a very lightweight, light-coloured, vesicular form of rhyolite) along with ash deposits, and / or ignimbrite. In certain situations extremely porous rhyolite lava flows may develop. The extreme porosity of such flows allows degassing and subsequent collapse of the flow, forming obsidian (dark coloured volcanic glass)." [link to flexiblelearning.auckland.ac.nz]

I have also read this:

Viscosity of Magmas

Viscosity is the resistance to flow (opposite of fluidity).

Viscosity depends on primarily on the composition of the magma, and temperature.

Higher SiO2 (silica) content magmas have higher viscosity than lower SiO2 content magmas (viscosity increases with increasing SiO2 concentration in the magma).

Lower temperature magmas have higher viscosity than higher temperature magmas (viscosity decreases with increasing temperature of the magma). [Meaning: 'is thinner'.]

Thus, basaltic magmas tend to be fairly fluid (low viscosity), but their viscosity is still 10,000 to 100,0000 times more viscous than water.

Rhyolitic magmas tend to have even higher viscosity, ranging between 1 million and 100 million times more viscous than water.

(Note that solids, even though they appear solid have a viscosity, but it's very high, measured as trillions times the viscosity of water). Viscosity is an important property in determining the eruptive behavior of magmas...

...In general more siliceous magmas form by low degrees of partial melting. As the degree of partial melting increases, less siliceous compositions can be generated. So, melting a mafic source thus yields a felsic or intermediate magma. Melting of ultramafic (peridotite source) yields a basaltic magma.

Magmatic Differentiation

But, processes that operate during transportation toward the surface or during storage in the crust can alter the chemical composition of the magma. These processes are referred to as magmatic differentiation and include assimilation, mixing, and fractional crystallization...

...Assimilation - As magma passes through cooler rock on its way to the surface it may partially melt the surrounding rock and incorporate this melt into the magma. Because small amounts of partial melting result in siliceous liquid compositions, addition of this melt to the magma will make it more siliceous...

...If the liquid part of the magma has a low viscosity, then the gas can expand relatively easily. When the magma reaches the Earth's surface, the gas bubble will simply burst, the gas will easily expand to atmospheric pressure, and a non-explosive eruption will occur, usually as a lava flow (Lava is the name we give to a magma when it on the surface of the Earth)..." [link to www.tulane.edu]



My query is: what if we are talking SMALL VOLUMES at the outset?

What if we are seeing exposures of extremely low viscosity liquids -a.k.a. a pre-lava- which are being finally carried upwards to the surface after settling on the surface of rock not yet melted for 70, 000 to 630,000 years?

Think of it this way: Yellowstone is a cacophony of all sorts of deposits, some which are slowly creating fumeroles and domes and mounds...which are ALL considered to be part of the process of HOW VOLCANOES FORM.

Put another way: we know that every day, geysers and pools at Yellowstone continue the process of volcanism, as seen in the deposits they issue forth.

WHY NOT A 'PRE-LAVA' lava stage?

The stuff that has been sitting underground all these millennium is being stirred up, mixing in with passing waters, has to come out at some point.

The very fact that Yellowstone has been SO QUIET as a Supervolcano does NOT discount the fact that volcanic processes are occurring every day within the park.

(Whew! I need to breathe a second or two.)



Therefore, I will continue my quest to find out if any professional through the ages has also considered that there might be a noticeable pre-eruptive effusive-eruptive stage to be seen in effusions at volcanic sites.

Why can't lava be sooooo very less vicious in it's early stages, as its main volume of magma creeps to the surface?

Is THAT part of what we are seeing in the park, as seen in powder on lenses, and now 'covering' a good deal of the landscape -as light as it might be, and what's trailing down the mound ever so little near LION, and what spewed forth from that dome some days ago, as I've already noted?

There must come a point where we think carefully about subtle things right before our very eyes.
