Hey there. I have a few things I want to show real quick. Steamboat erupted for the 28th time just a little bit ago (at the time of writing this). It was not as strong as most 2018 eruptions but lasted for quite a while. It was also preceded by a very small micro quake swarm near the Norris area. The swarm actually occurred during the Steamboat eruption too but the quakes were very tiny. Maybe around -0.3 to 0.5 with the largest probably being about 0.9 or so. Idaho also saw a very strong earthquake, but not in Soda Springs! It was all the way on the opposite side of the state. Alaska also saw a large, and deep, 5.7 earthquake just as volcanic activity at Veniaminof volcano in Alaska started to skyrocket. Could that 5.7 be related to the increase in activity?

Large Quake Strikes Olympic Peninsula in WA, Santa Sees an Earthquake, Yellowstone Sees a Peculiar Swarm
Hey guys. There has been some interesting activity once again! The Olympic Peninsula in Washington state, which doesn't see magnitude 4 quakes too much, got struck by a 4.1 and then a M1.3 aftershock. The North Pole also saw a magnitude 4.4 earthquake and Yellowstone just recently saw a very weird 9-minute earthquake swarm with peculiar characteristics. I will show the data from these events.

Hey there guys. I have some interesting stuff to show in this post. I will show the data for the most recent Steamboat Geyser eruption at Yellowstone, an earthquake that some people felt in Federal Way and near where I live, the recent earthquakes in Soda Springs, and a very strange earthquake that occurred near New Jersey.

Hey there guys. A very interesting earthquake just struck off the east coast of Greenland, north of Iceland. It occurred just 75 miles (120km) west of Jan Mayen Island. It was a magnitude 6.8 earthquake at 10km in depth and it occurred at 1:49UTC November 9, 2018, which is also 5:49pm Pacific Time November 8, 2018. I will show seismic helicorders and plots of this event. PLEASE CLICK THE TITLE OF THIS POST OR "READ MORE" TO READ MORE!
Starting at about 1:43UTC November 8, 2018 (6:43pm Mountain Time November 7, 2018) there was another increase in seismicity near the Maple Creek/Hebgen Lake area. It was a swarm of about 10 earthquakes or so and many were very small. The University of Utah and USGS did report 6 of the earthquakes so they were able to locate the majority of them. These earthquakes occurred between 9.8km and 12km in depth. This blog post will simply show plots and helicorders of this small swarm.

Steamboat geyser in the Norris Geyser Basin has officially erupted for the 26th time. The all time record was achieved in 1964 when it erupted 29 times. We are approaching the end of the year but if these eruptions continue at near the same pace, then it will beat the record by the time the year ends. The 26th eruption occurred at 23:16UTC on November 7, 2018 (4:16pm Mountain Time, November 7, 2018). Below are the two helicorder images of this event along with two 3-plot analysis images. Please ALWAYS read chart labels first!
YNM felt this eruption the strongest. YNR felt it 2nd and B950 did not feel this event at all. Why? The vibrations you see are most likely only surface vibrations of this event, not the vibrations from the free-flow of super-heated water leading to an eruption. For proof of this please CLICK HERE to visit my article about recent steamboat eruptions. Let me know what you think! Have a good day!
