If you wish to see which earthquakes in the plots below were reported, simply go to one of the buttons I provided somewhere above that shows you the USGS earthquake map for Yellowstone during this time period. Earthquakes are reported in UTC and the times on the plots are in UTC as well. You can also find the locations of all stations at Yellowstone by looking for one of the two buttons I posted in the beginning of this post. Also, I do not detail every single event of the swarm in the plots below. However, I do try to show most of them. Severity is a personal determination, with the April 11, 2018 swarm acting as a sort of baseline for a major rapid-fire swarm. Severity ranges from minor, to moderate, to major. In rare cases, “extreme” will be used. However, I have not seen a rapid-fire swarm that could ever be labeled as such. But you never know what will happen in the future!
