It’s been another active summer at Yellowstone National Park, both above and below the ground. A swarm of more than 140 earthquakes in one day, some greater than 2.0 on the Richter Scale, took place in mid-July. During that month, the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory recorded more than 1000 earthquakes.

Listen to learn what the Yellowstone rumblings are all about from the observatory’s Chief Seismologist and Research Professor at the University of Utah, Dr. Jamie Farrell.
