Some of the most valuable data used to understand the evolution of Yellowstone are microscopic! This week's #Yellowstone #CalderaChronicles explores the tools that researchers use to study the microscopic products of the volcano’s multiple eruptions. https://t.co/V4TW4CmZ6t https://t.co/58gERw7BZe

A peaceful view of Mount St. Helens on Sept 28, 1979 (Mount Adams can be seen in the background).  Just 8 months later it would erupt sending volcanic ash 80,000 feet into the air. More here: https://t.co/1FMyoyUSnr #MagmaMonday https://t.co/2bgLfvOAXb

Blind thrusts - faults that do not have a surface expression (and are very difficult to image without geophysics) represent a serious seismic hazard in urban regions. 1989's Loma Prieta quake which struck the Bay Area is one reminder of the damage they are capable of #Geology101 https://t.co/9xTbdudb4W

In honor of #NationalPublicLandsDay tomorrow, we’re excited to welcome Thomas Moran’s paintings back to Interior. Inspired by expeditions to @YellowstoneNPS & @GrandCanyonNPS in the 1870s, Moran’s art excited early support for establishing public lands: https://t.co/dOoAvENc7Q https://t.co/iZcQZtxUMn

#OnThisDay in 1890, @SequoiaKingsNPS was established. Every 5 years, scientists with the USGS Western Ecological Research Center (WERC) measure the diameter of these giants, not only for determining the size of the trees but also for tracking tree growth rates. https://t.co/7kggc7Sd93

We've released a #debrisflow hazard map for the #PineGulchFire, CO burn area that indicates a very high to high level of debris-flow hazard in most of the burned area. Debris flows can be hazardous to life and infrastructure. See https://t.co/LmGuvpTHCe #USGS https://t.co/NS1CWI4kOy
