The Yellowstone Volcano: Past, Present and Future

So please welcome Jake Lowenstern to talk about Yellowstone. For the next hour or so, we’re going to talk about Yellowstone. Yellowstone, for those who haven’t been there, it’s in the northwest corner of Wyoming. About 1000 miles to the northeast of us here. And it’s a pretty big park. It’s about 9000 square kilometers, or something like 3600 square miles. And for this Bay Area audience it might be useful to look at Yellowstone relative to the Bay Area itself. So that’s Yellowstone National Park. The pink line in the middle is the caldera. We’ll talk more about that, […]

Mars’ Largest Volcano – Olympus Mons

This is Mars. Three billion years ago it had active volcanoes. One still remains, the largest volcano in the solar system. The cliffs leading to it are over nine kilometers high. Mt. Everest would sit comfortably in their shadow and those are just the foothills. This is the awe-inspiring Olympus Mons. It covers an area the size of Arizona. Its crater alone is 85 kilometers wide. Yet a structure this size would require millions of years to form, time that volcanoes on Earth never get. On Earth, the crust is always moving. Deep below a single hot spot pushes magma […]

How Auckland Volcanoes Erupt

Auckland City is built on a field of small volcanoes, about 50 of them. And some of these volcanoes you can see as you drive around the city – they’re obvious cones. other volcanoes are really just holes in the ground, and that tells us about the different styles of eruption that have taken place in Auckland during the past quarter of a million years. Beneath Auckland there is a hot-spot in the mantle, we think at a depth of about 80 to 100 kms and in this hot-spot rocks are melting and producing magma. The magma segregates and it […]
