Yellowstone Hazzards Topic of Thursday Lecture

May 12, 2009

Jake Lowenstern, director of the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory, will discuss "Geologic Hazards at Yellowstone and the Role of the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory" Thursday, May 14, at 3 p.m. in Room 216 of the UW S.H. Knight Geology Building.

He says the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory (YVO) was created to strengthen the long-term monitoring of volcanic and earthquake unrest in the Yellowstone National Park region.

"Yellowstone is the site of the world's largest and most diverse collection of natural thermal features," Lowenstern says.

YVO is one of the five USGS volcano observatories that monitor volcanoes within the United States for science and public safety.
