Millions of years ago, the North American continent was dragged over the world's largest continental hotspot, a huge column of hot and molten rock rising from the Earth's interior that traced a 50-mile wide, 500-mile-long path northeastward across Idaho.
This book is the story of those events and how the landscape of the two great national parks was .
This book is the story of those events and how the landscape of the two great national parks was shaped by earthquakes, volcanoes, geysers and, in the uplifted Rocky Mountains, mountain glaciers. The story is also a 'window' into the earth's interior, revealing the dynamic processes within. He contributed to the Pulitzer Prize-winning coverage of the 1980 Mount St. Helens eruption by The Daily News of Longview, Washington, and in 1996, he won the Utah Seismic Safety Commissions first annual Outstanding Contribution to Earthquake Safety in Utah Award.
The Yellowstone volcanic field, Yellowstone National Park, is one of the most seismically active areas of the western . experiencing the deadly 1959 M. Hebgen Lake, MT, earthquake adjacent to the . 4-Ma caldera, as well as more than 30,000 earthquakes from 1973 to 2007. This well-recorded seismic activity offers the opportunity to study the temporal and spatial occurrence of earthquakes and extensive earthquake swarms and how they relate to active volcanic and tectonic processes.
