“In the Norris Geyser Basin area, a small deformation has been detected from a nearby GPS station since early 2020.”
In short, all the indicators suggest that nothing is out of the ordinary at the Yellowstone supervolcano.
Between 1,000 and 3,000 earthquakes occur in Yellowstone each year, most of which are not felt.
The US National Park Service (NPS) said, “In Yellowstone, earthquakes help maintain hydrothermal activity by keeping the” hydraulic “system open.
“Without the periodic disturbance of relatively small earthquakes, the small fractures and conduits that supply hot water to the geysers and hot springs could be sealed from mineral deposition.”
