OPINION (Express) – A Yellowstone volcano “thermal area” 20 years in the making has stunned Yellowstone scientists, according to a US Geological Survey (USGS) report. The Yellowstone volcano thermal area has appeared in the northern part of the National park and is visible via Google Earth. There are more than 10,000 thermal features across the supervolcano park, which range from scorching geysers to hot springs. All of these thermal features are evidence of the intense magmatic processes deep beneath Yellowstone. But

the features are ever-changing and as they heat up and cool down, the USGS said they can move around Yellowstone. USGS scientist Greg Vaughan said in the latest Caldera Chronicles: “These sorts of changes are part of the normal life cycles of thermal areas in Yellowstone National Park. “Recently, we have discovered another phenomenal example of thermal change – the emergence of a new thermal area, which has taken place over the past 20 years.” READ MORE
