    "That is some form of harmonic tremor, not the random noise that the two original linked seismographs are recording. This tremor is only being picked up by the single seismograph though, so its quite possible its just some local interference.

    Based on historical movement of the Yellowstone hotspot, its more likely that any event would occur on the northeastern most side of the caldera, primarily extending into southern Montana." This site tracks Montana seismographs:

    http://mbmgquake.mtech.edu/earthworm/wavef_disp/current/welcome.html

    The ones you want to pay attention to are: BZMT, MSMT, CRMT, and GCMT. An example of another malfunction seismograph is STMT, so don't use that one.

    From link.

    QUOTE: Clintonville Wisconsin -- be sure to search the terms ... "marathon wisconsin volcano" ... "caldron reservoir" .. and "lake superior volcanic" . The nuclear power plant to the east is called the Kewaunee plant .. all these sites have ONE thing in common... deep earth shafts... pumped or filled full of water.... add in craton/plate pressure and a bit of deep earth magma surge underneath the plate as it gets pushed by the Pacific unrest... and you get underground explosions in Wisconsin near a dormant volcanic site.

    Dormant Volcano, Fracking , or Nuclear plant !!! JUST LIKE ALL THE REST .. we see within about 20 miles or less... remember GEORGIA??? Just a few months ago? strange "explosion" reports coming out of the ground... REMEMBER WHAT I FOUND ?!!! here it is again in case you didnt see , or in case you forgot ! http://sincedutch.wordpress.com/2011/11/14/11132011-georgia-earthquake-near-d...

    Georgia had reports of the SAME kind of activity just a few month ago in Nov. 2011 .. turns out .. VULCAN MINING COMPANY was mining Georgia's Pigeon Mountain dormant/extinct volcano just 19 miles WEST of the town that was reporting the ground explosions. YOU MUST READ THE ABOVE GEORGIA ARTICLE if you're going to understand whats going on in Wisconsin.

    Coordinates of Clintonville WI to view on google earth: 44°37'40.01"N , 88°45'24.44"W

    Marathon County volcanic chain is just one county west .. 20 miles approx.

    New study indicates Yellowstone erupts more frequently than previously thought
    April 30, 2012 – YELLOWSTONE – New research is casting doubts on the frequency or even the possibility of a ‘super-eruption’ that could blot out the sun from the Earth with a thick veil of volcanic ash. A joint research team from Washington State University and the Scottish Universities Environmental Research Centre said the biggest Yellowstone eruption on record was actually two different eruptions at least 6,000 years apart. According to the study published in the June 2012 issue of the Quaternary Geochronology, these eruptions are thought to have created the Huckleberry Ridge around 2 million years ago. The first eruption generated 2,200 cubic kilometers of volcanic material, while the second, smaller eruption generated 290 cubic kilometers. The first eruption is still considered to be ‘super’ according to the Volcanic Explosivity Index (VEI) and likely covered the sky in volcanic ash from California to the Mississippi River. The VEI was developed by Chris Newhall of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and Sephen Self at the University of Hawaii in 1982. The open-ended scale ranges from 0 to 8 and is based on the volume of material produced, eruption cloud height, and other qualitative observations. Small continuously erupting volcanoes, like those found in Hawaii, are considered a zero on the VEI. The 1980 Mount St. Helens eruption and the Vesuvius eruption in 79 C.E., both of which produced about 1 cubic km of volcanic material, rank in the middle of the pack at five on the VEI. The recent study’s findings suggest that the volcanic formation known as the Island Park Caldera is more active than previously thought and could help geologists to more accurately predict its next seismic event. The caldera is actually comprised of two smaller calderas and stretches 58 miles from Wyoming to Idaho. “The Yellowstone volcano’s previous behavior is the best guide of what it will do in the future,” said study co-author Ben Ellis of Washington State University. “This research suggests explosive volcanism from Yellowstone is more frequent than previously thought.” In calculating the different layers of rock and sediment, the team honed radioactive dating techniques involving the potassium 40 and argon 40 isotopes. These radioactive elements act as a “rock clock” for dating samples and have a precision of 0.2 percent. Darren Mark, study co-author at the Scottish research center, recently helped fine tune the technique to improve it by 1.2 percent—an exponential improvement in accuracy. “Improved precision for greater temporal resolution is not just about adding another decimal place to a number, says Mark. ”It’s far more exciting. It’s like getting a sharper lens on a camera. It allows us to see the world more clearly.” While the last known Yellowstone eruption to cause a lava flow was about 70,000 years ago, smaller steam-only eruptions have caused seismic events like the one at Yellowstone Lake almost 14,000 years ago that created a 5 km crater. The Old Faithful geyser is probably the most famous evidence of ongoing volcanic activity at Yellowstone Park. The geyser erupts between every 65 and 91 minutes, depending of the duration of the previous eruption. –Red Orbit

    Yellowstone geysers become active again after dormant periods
    http://www.yellowstonegate.com/2012/06/dormantyellowstone-geysers-active-again/
    June 23, 2012 – YELLOWSTONE WATCH - Yellowstone geyser enthusiasts are reporting that a handful of Yellowstone National Park geysers appear to be active again after periods of dormancy, including one geyser that last erupted almost two decades ago. Morning Geyser, quiet for 18 years, is now active, and there is news that an electronic monitor on Echinus in Norris Geyser Basin picked up an eruption. North Goggles Geyser has also started erupting more regularly than the lone annual display it has typically shown over the past few years. The last time it was this active was 2004. Joining the list of newly reactivated thermal features are Fan and Mortar geysers, which may be beginning an active cycle. Morning Geyser is one of the tallest and prettiest geysers in the Lower Geyser Basin. The wide eruptions have the potential of reaching 200 feet tall. It is located in the Fountain Paint Pots area, just behind Fountain Geyser. Morning Geyser last erupted in 1994. The first reported eruption this year occurred on Wed., June 20. A second eruption was reported the following day, with geyser gazers reporting online that Morning Geyser spewed for up to 30 minutes, reaching a height of 200 feet. For the past few weeks, geyser gazer Maureen Edgerton has watched a change in her favorite geyser, Fountain Geyser, of longer intervals between eruptions than seen in recent years. It may be that there is a connection between Morning Geyser and Fountain Geyser, and a change in Fountain Geyser could result in changes in other thermal features in the area. The announcement of a third geyser reactivating came from an email sent to a geyser email list from Yellowstone National Park ranger Denise Herman, who relayed a message from Jacob B. Lowenstern, the scientist in charge of the U.S. Geological Survey’sYellowstone Volcano Observatory. Lowenstern noted that a temperature probe indicated that Echinus erupted at 3:25 a.m. on Mon., June 28, stating that “no one saw it, but it is the first known eruption since January 2011.” –Yellowstone Gate

    http://news.yahoo.com/yellowstones-volcano-bigger-thought-134714973.html
    Scientists find Yellowstone’s volcano is bigger than previously thought
    April 18, 2013 – SALT LAKE CITY — Yellowstone’s underground volcanic plumbing is bigger and better connected than scientists thought, researchers reported here today (April 17) at the Seismological Society of America’s annual meeting. “We are getting a much better understanding of the volcanic system of Yellowstone,” said Jamie Farrell, a seismology graduate student at the University of Utah. “The magma reservoir is at least 50 percent larger than previously imaged.” Knowing the volume of molten magma beneath Yellowstone is important for estimating the size of future eruptions, Farrell told OurAmazingPlanet. Geologists believe Yellowstone sits over a hotspot, a plume of superheated rock rising from Earth’s mantle. As North America slowly drifted over the hotspot, the Yellowstone plume punched through the continent’s crust, leaving a bread-crumb-like trail of calderas created by massive volcanic eruptions along Idaho’s Snake River Plain, leading straight to Yellowstone. The last caldera eruption was 640,000 years ago. Smaller eruptions occurred in between and after the big blasts, most recently about 70,000 years ago. The magma chamber seen in the new study fed these smaller eruptions and is the source of the park’s amazing hydrothermal springs and geysers. It also creates the surface uplift seen in the park, said Bob Smith, a seismologist at the University of Utah and author of a related study presented at the meeting. The volcanic plume of partly molten rock that feeds the Yellowstone supervolcano. Yellow and red indicate higher conductivity, green and blue indicate lower conductivity. Made by University of Utah geophysicists and computer scientists, this is the first large-scale ‘geoelectric’ image of the Yellowstone hotspot. “This crustal magma body is a little dimple that creates the uplift,” Smith said. “It’s like putting your finger under a rubber membrane and pushing it up and the sides expand.” A clearer picture of Yellowstone’s shallow magma chamber emerged from earthquakes, whose waves change speed when they travel through molten or solid rock. Farrell analyzed nearby earthquakes to build a picture of the magma chamber. The underground magma resembles a mutant banana, with a knobby, bulbous end poking up toward the northeast corner of Yellowstone National Park, and the rest of the tubular fruit angling shallowly southwest. It’s a single connected chamber, about 37 miles (60 kilometers) long, 18 miles (30 km) wide, and 3 to 7 miles (5 to 12 km) deep. Previously, researchers had thought the magma beneath Yellowstone was in separate blobs, not a continuous pocket. The shallowest magma, in the northeast, also matches up with the park’s most intense hydrothermal activity, Farrell said. The new study is the best view yet of this zone, which lies outside the youngest caldera rim. Additional molten rock, not imaged in this study, also exists deeper beneath Yellowstone, scientists think. -Yahoo

    Yellowstone rattled by three ‘unusual’ earthquake swarms
    September 24, 2013 – JACKSON, Wyo. — Until recently, Bob Smith had never witnessed two simultaneous earthquake swarms in his 53 years of monitoring seismic activity in and around the Yellowstone Caldera. Now, Smith, a University of Utah geophysics professor, has seen three swarms at once. “It’s very remarkable,” Smith said. “How does one swarm relate to another? Can one swarm trigger another and vice versa?” Because concurrent swarms have never been detected in the past, the answers aren’t in yet, Smith said. The geophysicist said he “wouldn’t doubt” if at least two of the events were related. Temblors from the three quake swarms mostly hit in three areas: Lewis Lake, the Lower Geyser Basin and the northwest part of Norris Geyser Basin. The largest earthquake shook the ground near Old Faithful Geyser on Sept. 15. The epicenter of the magnitude 3.6 quake, the largest in Yellowstone in about a year, was just 6 miles to the north of Old Faithful. “Generally speaking it needs to be 3.0 or higher for individuals to feel it,” Yellowstone National Park spokesman Al Nash said. Yellowstone’s recent earthquake swarms started on Sept. 10 and were shaking until about 11:30 a.m. Sept. 16. “A total of 130 earthquakes of magnitude 0.6 to 3.6 have occurred in these three areas, however, most have occurred in the Lower Geyser Basin,” a University of Utah statement said.

    “Notably much of seismicity in Yellowstone occurs as swarms.” Including smaller events that have not been verified, there were many more quakes, Smith said. The recent swarms produced roughly four quakes that were large enough to feel. The first, a magnitude 3.5, struck Sept. 13 about 17 miles northeast of West Yellowstone, Mont. Then, in the early hours Sept. 15, two quakes, a magnitude 3.2 and magnitude 3.4, were detected in quick succession at 5:10 and 5:11 a.m., about 15 miles southeast of West Yellowstone. The magnitude 3.6 that marked the peak of the swarm struck nearby about 4 1/2 hours later. “They weren’t big earthquakes,” Smith said, “but they were felt.” About half a dozen earthquakes are felt in Yellowstone in an average year, he said. “This is pretty unusual, to be honest,” Smith said. None of the recent quakes, Nash said, were strong enough to cause damage or throw off the cycle of the Old Faithful geyser’s eruptions. “We know that a significant enough earthquake in the region has potential to alter geyser activity,” the spokesman said. “A strong enough earthquake, like the one that occurred out at Hebgen Lake in 1959, did change the interval of Old Faithful eruptions.” That quake, a 7.3 to 7.5 on the Richter magnitude scale, caused nearly 300 features on the Yellowstone landscape to erupt, 160 of which had no previous record of geysers. Smith traced the three recent earthquake swarms to the Hebgen Lake quake. “We think that much of the seismicity is still aftershocks from that event in 1959. It can go on for hundreds of years.” –Guardian LV
