It's no reach to say that the ecosystem of Yellowstone National Park is one of the most dynamic and interesting in the world. It's a constantly changing environment that is not short on mystery. One of the biggest questions in the park over the past several years is why did Steamboat Geyser reawaken. A new study attempted to solve the mystery, but the conclusion is they still don't know.
I must admit that I tend to be apprehensive about sharing news about what the geysers are doing in Yellowstone. The reason being that no matter what I share someone seems to want to tie it to the super volcano. That's likely to be the case here as Steamboat Geyser has started erupting much more frequently over the past few weeks.
There has been a lot of thermal activity at Yellowstone National Park over the past several years and now scientists think they know why. They believe that magma rising is responsible for uplift in the park and new activity recently at Steamboat Geyser.
There are reports that Steamboat Geyser at Yellowstone National Park has just erupted for the 23rd time this year. This is nearly unprecedented for Steamboat which previously hadn’t erupted for 4 years prior to 2018.
