Supervolcano eruption in the United States

82
In early April, 2014, some media and bloggers have suggested that a large earthquake and the flight of animals from Yellowstone Park (USA) may warn of a coming eruption of the same name supervolcano.


As noted by RIA News"the last time Yellowstone Supervolcano erupted 600 thousands of years ago, and from geological stories the North American continent, it follows that the frequency of eruptions is exactly 600 thousands of years. But, according to experts and volcanologists, the migration of buffaloes on the territory of Yellowstone National Park and the increase in the number of earthquakes do not serve as forerunners of the next giant eruption. It is worth noting that 2.1 million years ago, the Yellowstone Volcano was covered with ashes almost a quarter of the territory of the modern United States.

As Peter Cervelli, a volcanologist at the American Geological Survey, notes, data from GPS receivers and seismometers indicate that a disaster is unlikely. "I still see no reason to say that a strong eruption is preparing in Yellowstone," the scientist notes.

According to Cervelli, humanity should be more wary of not the eruption of the supervolcano, but the fall of a huge asteroid.

Ilya Bindeman, a geologist at the University of Oregon, called Yellowstone Volcano "dying." After the last eruption, its summit collapsed, resulting in the formation of a huge depression - the caldera. According to the expert, for the next catastrophic eruption, the volcano requires a new development cycle. "I do not think that the next major eruption will occur in the foreseeable future - certainly not in the next million or two million years," - he said.

According to the spokesperson of Yellowstone National Park, Al Nash, in the migration of animals is also not unusual. “They are just migrating to the lowlands at this time, where they can find more food. Then they will come back, ”he said.

It is worth recalling that the largest eruption of a volcano in the history of mankind occurred in Indonesia in 1815 year. Due to the explosion of the volcano Tambor in the atmosphere got 150-180 cube. km breeds. The temperature on the entire planet has decreased, and 1816, in the year, went down in history as the “year without summer”.

      Well, firstly, if you can google dozens of articles with authoritative opinions of other scientists, that there will be an eruption.
      And secondly...

      According to Cervelli, humanity should be more wary of not the eruption of the supervolcano, but the fall of a huge asteroid.

          And what are you waiting for, that a volcanologist at a government salary around the world will say that the volcano will explode in the near future. Then questions will arise for this very government - what should be done? Evacuate 100 million people? The fact that South Africa refuses to accept refugees for 000 lard a year should not be discounted. The US government still itches on this score, which means it believes in the reality of a volcano explosion.

          From an eruption of such power, which is predicted in Yellowstone, the entire planet will be seriously, if not catastrophically, affected. So, spit it, and you don't need giant asteroids, and "to spite my mother, I'll frostbite my ears"

      Of course, one must rely on oneself, on one's active involvement in a good cause, but the statements of American scientists (due to circumstances) are not worth the slightest attention. Better to pay attention to the actions of the US government in connection with the "Yellowstone" problem ...

      Well, given what Yankees are vigilant and alarmists, it’s not beneficial for the government to say that it’s going to explode now, and indeed it’s panic, evacuation, etc. I feel sorry for the animals, and the nature, for all the patriots will forgive me, ordinary people are also not to blame for anything, many do not like the politics of their country.

      hi Yes, FIG knows! For several days in a row I observed the seismic activity and temperature of Yelluston! As it is customary to say, everything is not so simple!
      The temperature in the reservoirs near the volcano grew! The seismograph was in a fever, although the tremors were not strong with a magnitude near 2, but a lot, then the seismographs turned off or simply hid them! The last strong shock was the magnitude of 4.8, a similar shock was in 70's! So there is a threat !

        Suppose that all of a sudden an eruption will actually be known about it, and if you tell the people the truth, what will happen then? Panic! The mass flight of everyone and everything. Therefore, it is easy to compose a fairy tale about the natural migration of animals for feeding. This does not check how not to check the opposite. The only thing I know is that tourists now have their way there. Therefore, the main thing - without panic lol

In general, people have not yet learned how to predict earthquakes or volcanic eruptions, but it is theoretically possible to help speed up the process or cause it. To cause an explosion of a supervolcano by a directional seismic action with a certain resonant frequency in the earth's crust.

    I do not know, I read that within 10 years an eruption will happen. I have nothing against the destruction of the United States, but will go to the whole world. So it’s better to demolish the other way.

    Alas, no one gives guarantees that the Yellowstone will erupt in the minimum way, that is, with an emission of up to 300 cubic km. ash. Such a weak eruption he had only once, and during the first eruption of Yellowstone, the amount of emission was 2500 km³.
    The second eruption of the supervolcano occurred 1,27 million years ago; but then woke up Yellowstone was limited to "only" 280 cubic kilometers of emissions.
    The third eruption took place 640 years ago; it was half as weak as the first time. But even this was enough for the top of the volcano to fail, forming a caldera - a huge round hollow with a circumference of 000 km.
    Alas, the options for eruptions according to the first and third options leave no chances not only for the United States, but also for us. Although the likelihood of a "weak" eruption, this time in my opinion is.

    For a long time, if the states did not deserve the fate of Sodom and Gomorrah, then God's warning in the form of a "Washington", or even better, a "Pentagon" meteorite, would not have prevented them, so that they were liquidly fouled, and the streets were washed for a month.

      1. "don't judge for yourself ....
      2. "don't dig a hole for another ..."
      And the third thing: in the event of a "full-scale" eruption (explosion) of such a volcanic Koldera as Ieluston, it will not seem to anyone, on a global scale. The fact that in this version the United States will simply cease to exist practically, supplemented by cataclysms of epic proportions on other continents (countries, Russia is no exception). So, the joy that “the house of a bad neighbor has completely burned down” will be very short.

        So, this is not what we are talking about, especially if we draw a parallel with the fate of Sodom and Gomorrah, where people did not judge and it was not they who "dug a hole." I mean that the Chelyabinsk meteorite flew in the wrong place, as did the Tunguska meteorite at one time. Maybe the Yankees then would have thought less about the attack, and better understood the fragility of our world, its interdependence, and did less vile things to others.

    As Peter Cervelli, a volcanologist at the American Geological Survey, notes, data from GPS receivers and seismometers indicate that a disaster is unlikely. "I still see no reason to say that a strong eruption is preparing in Yellowstone," the scientist notes.
    They can’t give a normal forecast for the weather, but here you understand they note, but they do not guarantee it. Scientists suggest, but God disposes. With the policies of the American authorities and the volcano it is not necessary to destroy the whole world.

    disasters usually happen suddenly. And the news about the ends of the world from various reasons - every day. So every day is the end of the world. This is the end, of the Light.

    We all don’t want global curls, but a little catastrophic for
    USA and Canada - yes! Shake the USA and distract them from the role of capo in the world.

    How many pay so I say that there will be no eruption?
    Fortunately, it can be argued that volcanology is a young science and can live in it.

    The volcano has already woken up and progress is underway, so wait for the news and America kapets! Natural anomalies and elements have not yet been canceled when the protection of holy Russia was needed! The face of the planet is Russia! It was America's turn to understand this. :)

    And in the opinion of my neighbor (also an authoritative person) - ,, Churchill came up with all this in the year 18, and seriously, we are powerless before the forces of nature, even if the judgment of God will not ask how much wealth I have accumulated, but they will ask how I life has lived. Here I’m trying men to help my neighbor, to give way to the car, not to file at work, in general, to live in good conscience, and it turns out that it’s not only difficult but also pleasant.

    Interesting! If this is true migration, it’s kind of like people specially built roads for this, and smart animals hurried to use it
    Has it been noticed before? Or do these migrations occur every 600 thousand years belay

    What scientists can predict or foresee! If they are so sure of their correctness and calculations, why did not they predict catastrophic earthquakes and tsunamis in Indonesia in 2004 and Japan in 2011!

    I don't know anything !!! My grandmother said that Obama (black prezik) is the last one, so - the last !!! and what will happen there - an asteroid or a volcano - what's the difference, "who is destined to be hanged - he will not drown."

    so, there is nothing to stir up the people with different biased, it will explode one of these days and "your America kirdyk" will come
