Yellowstone Volcano Eruption - Video Marketing Seo Services

If you don’t know the Yellowstone Caldera, well it is one of nature’s most fascinating creations and sits on the top of North America’s largest volcanic field. Here is a fun fact, it’s name means ‘cooking pot’ or ‘cauldron’ and it is formed when land collapses following a volcanic explosion.

The cavern of molten rock in the super volcano creeping underneath Yellowstone is even bigger that scientists had thought. Actually 2.5 times than they had thought to be exact. Doomsday might be closer that we thought.  This volcano has enough power to destroy the entire country!  This is a very scary situation. The park's “supervolcano” has the potential to erupt with a force about 2,000 times the size of Mount St. Helens, according to a new study. So because this thing could erupt any time between now and 60,000 years from now…if you aren’t religious you better reconsider that quick and start praying!! 
The new findings were discussed at the American Geophysical Union, where a team of scientists used a system of seismometers to measure the underground cavern beneath. Seismometers are instruments that measure motions of the ground, including those of seismic waves generated by earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and other seismic sources
The cavern measures 55 miles by 20 miles wide and anywhere from 1 to 9 miles deep. At that size it likely contains between 48 and 153 cubic miles of molten rock. As University of Utah professor Bob Smith told the BBC, "We’ve been working there for a long time, and we’ve always thought it would be bigger... but this finding is astounding." Dr. Jamie Farrell explained, “To our knowledge there has been nothing mapped of that size before." 
Scientist believe that the volcano has erupted at least 3 times in the past, they say about one every 700,000 years. If the Yellowstone volcano were to erupt it would be “catastrophic”. Soil samples reveal that the last time it exploded, it had covered the entire continent in ash, rivers of lava for hundreds of miles and the smoke cloud was screwing with the planet's climate for hundreds of years.
