Busting Myths About One of the Largest Volcanic Systems in the World - The Top 10 Misconceptions about Yellowstone Volcanism - Livestream

  • Contrary to popular belief, Yellowstone is not "overdue" for eruption. Volcanoes don't work that way. 
  • Yellowstone experiences thousands of earthquakes every year, but these are not a sign of the volcano getting ready to erupt.
  • Despite its reputation, most eruptions from Yellowstone are lava flows, not massive explosions.

Speaker: Michael Poland, USGS Yellowstone Volcano Observatory
