Including the minor earthquake swarm at West Thumb on August 21, 2018, there have been 3 earthquake swarms already for Yellowstone in the month of August. They were not too major but, just like before, we see the earthquake succession at West Thumb occurring at a farther rapid pace than other areas at Yellowstone (sometimes multiple earthquakes within one minute). Why? Who knows, but it is my opinion tectonic activity alone could not cause the West Thumb rapid succession swarms. Remember guys I am still a beginner at all of this! Seismology is extremely interesting to me and I cannot wait to make a career out of it! I will be talking about the swarms for August 26 and August 29-30 in this post.
