GRANITE PEAK PUBLICATIONS: Accompanying travelers to the national park since 2002

Special alert!

Here’s our chance to listen to one of the foremost authorities on what’s under Yellowstone explain what is known about the volcano.

Jake Lowenstern, U.S. Geological Survey scientist-in-charge of the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory, will talk tomorrow evening, January 23rd, at 7 pm PST about the latest understanding of earthquakes, uplifting ground, and steam explosions in Yellowstone’s caldera.

He will also talk about the amazing geological history of Yellowstone National Park and how scientists are monitoring the area in order some day to be able to forecast eruptions.

If you missed this talk and still want to watch it, it’s on the Current Season tab of the USGS lecture page (http://online.wr.usgs.gov/calendar/2014/jan14.html). Jake began with some amusing history but quickly got into the technical details about volcanism and the Yellowstone Caldera. Enjoy!
