The seismograms reveal that things are quieter today at Yellowstone: few quakes, no tremor (see below). This earthquake swarm has been notable for its intensity, but there has been nothing about it that suggested magma movement. It’ll be interesting to see what the seismologists have to say about it when they have gathered their data and made their analysis. In the meantime, Yellowstone needs careful monitoring – but then, it always does.
