There is a ghostly redwood forest in Yellowstone National Park.
MAMMOTH HOT SPRINGS — A sulfuric-smelling fog filled the November air, rising from bubbling pools on white terraces.
The talk about the Yellowstone volcano may be taking place in California on Thursday night, but anyone can log on to their computer to live-stream the event.
Jeff the Nature Guy shows how to make a volcano at home, and talks about how close we live to a real supervolcano!
ATOP MAUNA KEA, Hawaii — If you count from sea level, we were 13,796 feet up, almost as high as Mount Rainier. Plenty high enough.
Three areas in Yellowstone National Park’s caldera seem to have the highest probability for volcanism, according to a recently published study.
One of the cameras on the Terra satellite launched by NASA in 1999 has captured incredible images from outer space of such disasters as the Haiti earthquake, floods in Pakistan and Japan’s tsunami, but some researchers are hoping the same camera may help predict a disastrous event.
This is a map of all the active thermal areas based on ASTER hot pixel mapping.
This is a mosaic of ASTER nighttime thermal infrared images that cover all of Yellowstone Park's thermal areas.
This temperature anomaly map shows, for each thermal area, how much hotter it is compared to the surrounding (nonthermal) background area. The scale bar shows a range of 0 to 30 degrees C (32 to 86 F). So, for Sulfur Hills, even though there are boiling (93 C) fumaroles at the surface, the s…
The Terra satellite, launched by NASA in 1999, contains a camera that was used to take Yellowstone National Park's temperature.
In a first-of-its-kind measurement of electrical conductivity, scientists have found that the plume of hot and partly molten rock that feeds the Yellowstone supervolcano may be larger than earlier believed.
